    A shelter-in-place order has been lifted for Lafayette residents in the area of Ameno Drive, Ameno Court and Regio Court as of early Thursday morning, according to Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office and PG&E.

    Residents in that area had been told to shelter due to live power lines Wednesday evening, but sheriff's officials lifted the order at 10:05 p.m. Police had urged residents around 6:30 p.m. to go to the nearest place of safety because the power lines were still energized.

    The outage began at about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday after a tree fell on some power lines. As of 12:20 a.m., 34 customers remain without power, per PG&E's outage website.
