Updated Weather Forecast for Dry, Offshore Wind Event Means PG&E Might Need to Proactively Turn Off Power for Safety in Portions of 15 Counties

San Francisco, CA...Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) continues to monitor a potentially strong and dry offshore wind event forecasted to start early Sunday morning and expected to last through Monday. Given the expected weather conditions, PG&E began its one-day advance notifications to customers in areas where PG&E may need to proactively turn power off for safety to reduce the risk of wildfire from energized power lines.




The anticipated scope and timing of this event has changed from earlier announcements, based on updated weather forecasts that showed stronger wind gusts in a larger portion of PG&E’s service area. PG&E’s in-house meteorologists, as well as its Wildfire Safety Operation Center and Emergency Operations Center, continue to monitor conditions closely and additional notifications will be made today to customers who may be impacted by this event.

Potential Public Safety Power Shutoff on Sunday

The potential PSPS starting early Sunday morning could impact approximately 97,000 customers in portions of fifteen counties in the Northern Sierra and North Valley. Specifically, customers in portions of Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, El Dorado, Kern, Lake, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Tehama and Yuba counties are being notified. The total customer impacts are currently projected to be as follows:




County Customers impacted Medical Baseline
Alpine 572 6
Amador 5,471 401
Butte 18,669 1,784
Calaveras 9,978 386
El Dorado 35,614 2,442
Kern 27 0
Lake 55 2
Napa 181 5
Nevada 7,345 438
Placer 9,657 609
Plumas 785 24
Shasta 2,816 241
Sierra 1,098 22
Tehama 1,223 58
Yuba 3,385 282
Total 96,876 6,700

Ongoing Customer Notifications Customers can look up their address online to find out if their location is being monitored for the potential safety shutoff at www.pge.com/pspsupdates.

Customer notifications—via text, email and automated phone call—began Thursday. Customers enrolled in the company’s Medical Baseline Program who do not verify that they have received these important safety communications will be individually visited in person by a PG&E employee when possible. A primary focus will be given to customers who rely on electricity for critical life-sustaining equipment.

Here’s Where to Go to Learn More


  • PG&E’s emergency website www.pge.com/pspsupdates is now available in seven languages.
  • Customers are encouraged to update their contact information and indicate their preferred language for notifications by visiting www.pge.com/mywildfirealerts.
  • Tenants and non-account holders can sign up to receive PSPS ZIP Code Alerts for any area where you do not have a PG&E account by visiting www.pge.com/pspszipcodealerts.
  • PG&E has launched a new tool at its online Safety Action Center www.safetyactioncenter.pge.com to help customers prepare for an emergency event. This site includes resources to help customers develop an emergency plan and make necessary safety preparations.

Community Resource Centers Reflect COVID-Safety Protocols

PG&E will open outdoor, open-air Community Resource Centers (CRCs) in every county where a PSPS occurs. These temporary CRCs will be open to customers when power is out at their homes and will provide ADA-accessible restrooms, hand-washing stations; medical-equipment charging; Wi-Fi; bottled water; grab-and-go bags and non-perishable snacks. PG&E updates its CRC locations regularly, click here for updates.

All CRCs will follow important health and safety protocols including:


  • Facial coverings and maintaining a physical distance of at least six feet from those who are not part of the same household will be required at all CRCs.
  • Temperature checks will be administered before entering CRCs that are located indoors.
  • CRC staff will be trained in COVID-19 precautions and will regularly sanitize surfaces and use Plexiglass barriers at check-in.
  • All CRCs will follow county and state requirements regarding COVID-19, including limits on the number of customers permitted indoors at any time.

        Democrats are now trying to divide families. Instead of agree to disagree, they want you to have nothing at all to do with your family.

            You're right, Trump supporters have been lied to. The democrats and the media keep lying to the Republican supporters of our President, to our Military and to our first responders. To all of those people who put their lives on the line for us, we on the Right salute you.

            Imagine if you a postal worker and licensed gun owner, were asleep next to your paramedic girlfriend, and you heard your door getting kicked down. Imagine you used your gun to defend yourself and the cops (who should have knocked) shot wildly into your house and killed your girlfriend. And then, imagine the cops were only charged with shooting the walls of the apartment.

            Imagine if that murder was just another in a long line of overuse of force by police in your community. Imagine if you got pulled over constantly due to your skin color, and on and on and on... maybe you might feel a little frustrated?

Nothing to do with this article but nowhere to post above. What a wonderful thing for the Trifillo nursery to create a pumpkin patch - and so many varieties of gourds in the photo where for years all anyone had locally were traditional orange jack o'lantern types. So excited to bring the grandchildren AND I don't have to drive all the way to Sloughhouse to find beautiful, unusual gourds. Thank you!

Harris did another interview
Posted on: 2020-09-26 14:00:39   By: Anonymous
 
To the ashhole the other day who said harris hasn't done any news interviews, said Biden only gets softball lob questions, Harris had another NEWS interview, and here it is jerk-off.
From CNN, the only true, honest news source America can count on. This is the tough, real life news and interviews that can help American's pick their next president and VP of this nation.

Kamala Harris names Tupac 'best rapper alive' brought to you by CNN

" Tupac's legacy lives on. So much so, that vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris named him the best rapper alive.

During an interview with CNN commentator Angela Rye at the NAACP's virtual convention on Friday, Harris was asked: "Best rapper alive?”

KAMALA HARRIS PRAISES BLM, SAYS ONGOING PROTESTS ARE 'ESSENTIAL' FOR CHANGE IN US

Harris quickly caught herself, after naming the rap legend who was gunned down over 20 years ago in Las Vegas, Nevada, and laughed out loud at her mistake. Not alive, I know, I keep doing that," Harris said humorously.

She passed on answering the question saying: “there’s so many, you know?”
“There’s some I would not mention right now because they should stay in their lane,” Harris said, without elaborating"
