The lights are back on Monday night after a public safety power shutoff impacted parts of Napa and Solano counties, PG&E said.

The utility company issued planned power shutoffs beginning at 5 a.m. Monday due to increased fire danger that prompted the National Weather Service to issue a red flag warning for North Bay mountains and East Bay hills and valleys.

The only Bay Area counties affected were Solano and Napa. Some customers in both counties, along with some in Sonoma County, received notices of the possible shutdowns on Saturday. 

It rained in parts of the Bay Area Sunday morning, and at night, fire danger prompted PG&E to issue public safety power shutoffs. Meteorologist Rob Mayeda has more.

Statewide, PG&E cut power to 7,100 customers in 10 counties. As of Sunday evening, the shutoffs were expected to affect 1,225 customers in Napa County and 802 customers in Solano County.
