The Vallejo Fire Department said Sunday there were multiple areas in the city that were experiencing power outages due to weather causing power line failures.

Rain in the Bay Area area have shorted-out dozens of power poles including one in San Pablo.

Fire officials said PG&E is on site at the multiple locations within the city, however there is no estimate for when all outages will be restored.

Multiple smaller outages have also been reported in Pleasanton Hill, San Jose, Daly City, San Francisco, Oakland, and other areas, according to PG&E.

In Petaluma, police said a damaged power pole has blocked Madison Street between Wilson and Lakeview streets and is causing nearby power outages.

Authorities ask that people avoid the area, as they aren't sure how long the issues will persist.

They also want to remind motorists to treat intersections where lights are out as if stop signs were present.

Earlier Sunday, there were two separate power outages that affected thousands of PG&E customers in Morgan Hill and Gilroy.

NBC Bay Area Consumer Investigator Chris Chmura explains how California residents can get alerts for power outages -- whether rotating outages or power shutoffs.
