PG&E Cancels Many Planned Outages as Weather Conditions Improve

Due to favorable weather conditions, PG&E did not shut off power to Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties Tuesday night, as the utility originally said it would, and according to PG&E officials, no additional shutoffs are reportedly set to take place at this time.

While the impact of the utility's midweek shutoff has been reduced, about 510,000 customers in parts of 22 counties, including Marin, Napa, Sonoma and Solano, remained without power as of early Wednesday morning.

Another round of dry, gusty winds prompted PG&E to shut off power Tuesday. The winds are expected to calm down Wednesday morning.

Once the winds die down and the weather "all-clear" signal is given, crews will conduct safety inspections, repair any damage and restore power.

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

For those who remain without power, NBC Bay Area posted on Facebook a list of food safety tips.
