Bay Area Counties No Longer Threatened by Potential Power Shutoffs

NBC Universal, Inc.

PG&E released a statement Sunday confirming Napa and Sonoma counties are no longer facing potential power shutoffs due to changes in severity and location of strong winds.

On Friday, the company said about 132,000 PG&E customers would be affected, but that number has decreased to 92,000.

As of Sunday afternoon, the only counties that could still see potential power shutoffs are Fresno, Madera, Mariposa, Tulare and Tuolomne.

According to PG&E, high fire-risk conditions are expected to arrive later Sunday evening with high winds forecast to continue early Monday morning, peaking in strength during throughout the day, and possibly lingering in some regions through early Tuesday.

Most of the Bay Area is under a red flag warning that will go into effect Sunday night at 11 p.m. into Monday morning at 11 a.m.
