PG&E is Monitoring a Severe Wind Event Later this Week That Could Impact Portions of 17 Counties (Including Amador) Across Northern and Central California

San Francisco, CA...Pacific Gas and Electric Company activated its Emergency Operations Center at 6 p.m. Sunday night to monitor a potentially strong and dry offshore wind event Wednesday and Thursday of this week. PG&E's meteorological and operations teams continue to actively monitor the weather system that could impact portions of the Sierra Foothills and the North Bay.




Due to the forecasted extreme weather conditions and dry fuels, PG&E is considering proactively turning off power for safety, and implementing a Public Safety Power Shutoff, across portions of 17 Sierra Foothills and North Bay counties. At this time, no PSPS has been called, and PG&E will provide updates several times a day.

Portions of counties that may be impacted include, but are not limited to: Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Joaquin, Solano, Sonoma, Tehama, Yolo and Yuba. This potential event, if initiated, is expected to be significantly smaller in terms of scope and impact than the Oct. 9-12 PSPS event.

The main period of weather risk is forecast to last about 18 to 24 hours, from Wednesday evening through mid-day Thursday. The dry, windy weather pattern is expected to unfold across the Northern Sierra, Sacramento Valley and the North Bay. The start of the event is more than 72 hours away, and PG&E's meteorologists will continue to study updated weather forecast models 24/7 over coming days.

PG&E has opened its Emergency Operations Center in San Francisco. The status of PG&E's 7-Day PSPS Potential Forecast has moved to "PSPS Watch," indicating that there is a "reasonable chance of executing a PSPS to reduce public safety risk in a given geographic zone due to a combination of adverse weather and dry fuel conditions."

How Customers Can Prepare

As part of PSPS preparedness efforts, PG&E is asking customers to:

Update your contact information at www.pge.com/mywildfirealerts or by calling 1-866-743-6589 during normal business hours. PG&E will use this information to alert customers through automated calls, texts, and emails, when possible, prior to, and during, a Public Safety Power Shutoff.
Plan for medical needs like medications that require refrigeration or devices that need power.
Identify backup charging methods for phones and keep hard copies of emergency numbers.
Build or restock your emergency kit with flashlights, fresh batteries, first aid supplies and cash.
Keep in mind family members who are elderly, younger children and pets. Information and tips including a safety plan checklist are available at pge.com/wildfiresafety.
Learn more about wildfire risk and what to do before, during and after an emergency to keep your family safe at PG&E's Safety Action Center.

While customers in high fire-threat areas are more likely to be affected by a Public Safety Power Shutoff event, any of PG&E's more than 5 million electric customers could have their power shut off because the energy system relies on power lines working together to provide electricity across cities, counties and regions.

Generator Safety

Backup electric generators can be a part of any preparedness plan, but they can also pose unique safety hazards.

It's important to understand how to safely operate your generator before an emergency occurs. This means doing regular safety checks and being sure you have enough fuel to last a few days. If you don't understand how to use your generator, you risk damaging your property, endangering your life and endangering the lives of others.

Position your generator where its exhaust can vent safely to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be fatal. Never run a portable generator in the garage or in the rain, and never store generator fuel in the house.

Additional tips on the safe use of generators can be found at PG&E's Safety Action Center at www.safetyactioncenter.pge.com.

Whose great idea was it to take a bunch of business executives who bankrupted their business and turn them into weather forecasters who can shut off our power?

Not too smart in my way of thinking.

    Ole Mac is up to his eyeballs in contradictions again.
    Mac says- Too much regulation of PG&E and corps cause this.
    Mac says- PG&E needs to be responsible and have a safe distribution system.

    Ya Mac, because history has shown over and over that corporations can be trusted not to cause harm in the pursuit of profits.

    This only shows how morally corrupt Mac and his corporatism pals are.
    Without strict regulation we have poison food, water, air, baby products you name it. How many examples of the greed of corpratism do you need?

    Clear The Trees Fix The Lines
    Posted on: 2019-10-21 16:43:48   By: Anonymous
     
    PG&E as Newsome said has chosen to hand profits to stockholders and top brass in the company.

    Here's an idea trim the damn trees, and fix the aging lines.
    They showed a branch from a White Oak obviously dead that broke off and landed on a distribution line, which could of sparked a fire. Just because the branch was more than 12 feet from the lines. the tree was not marked for trimming. This is beyond criminal. Sagging lines need to be tightened, or have spreaders installed.
    Their system has been neglected for too long , revenues diverted from their intended purpose.

    CLEAR THE TREES- FIX THE LINES
