    PG&E on Tuesday is shutting off power to roughly 596,000 customers across Northern and Central California due to the return of high fire danger.

    Dry, gusty winds in the forecast Tuesday and Wednesday triggered the latest round of outages, which are expected to impact customers in eight of the Bay Area's nine counties, according to PG&E.

    PG&E acknowledged that customers impacted by a massive planned outage this past weekend could remain in the dark through the duration of the midweek blackouts.

    Meanwhile, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday announced PG&E would be offering rebates to customers impacted by the outages.
