PG&E has issued an all clear for most of the locations where it shut off power due to wildfire risk Sunday.
In areas where the all clear has been issued, crews are starting to inspect nearly 3,915 miles of transmission and distribution lines for damage or hazards. PG&E expects to restore power to the majority of the areas impacted by Monday night.
The utility shut off power to 65,000 customers Sunday morning in Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, El Dorado, Kern, Lake, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Sonoma, Tehama and Yuba counties due to windy weather and high fire risk.
A red flag warning was in place for much of interior Northern California down into the Central Valley from 9 p.m. Saturday until noon on Monday as strong winds and extremely dry conditions are expected to increase the risk of wildfires.
About 37,000 PG&E customers are also currently out of power due to wildfires that started overnight, the Glass and Zogg fires. These outages were not part of this planned shutoff.
More than 8,000 wildfires have already burned more than 3.7 million acres in California this year. Find a map of fires currently burning in the state here.
PG&E also shut off power to around 172,000 customers in 21 counties on Sept. 7 due to fire risk posed by intense heat and wind.
Click the search bar in the bottom left corner of this map to see if your address falls within the areas that have been impacted. This map is approximate, but PG&E also has an address lookup tool that will provide more exact information.
If you do fall within the blackout area, this does not mean that you will definitely lose power, just that you are within the area that PG&E may shut off power to.
