PG&E Will Not Shut Off Power in the North Bay Monday Evening

PG&E did not shut off power in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties Monday evening amid high fire danger across Northern California, but those areas could very well be in line for a power shutoff Tuesday, the utility said.

The utility on Sunday warned it anticipated a power shutoff in nine Northern California counties due to the hot, dry and windy conditions.

PG&E meteorologists on Monday examined weather forecast models and determined that they did not have to initiate a Public Safety Power Shutoff for the North Bay regions that evening.

North Bay residents could still face a power shutoff Tuesday evening if certain weather conditions present elevated wildfire risks.

Roughly 27,000 customers in Butte, Nevada and Yuba counties were affected by power shutoffs Monday evening, according to PG&E.
