Strong winds knocked down a tree overnight in Southern California. In the Bay Area more than 26,000 PG&E customers lost power, mostly because of the wind.
Gusty winds in the Bay Area overnight have left tens of thousands without power, according to a PG&E spokesman.
In the Santa Cruz Mountains area about 26,000 customers were without power as of 1:30 a.m., spokesman JD Guidi said.
As of 9 a.m. Thursday morning PG&E released new information about the number of people without power in the Bay Area.
