As the second PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff event lingers in some parts of Danville, parts of Northern California are gearing up for a third event on Tuesday evening -- but it appears that Tri-Valley communities will not be affected by additional outages, according to PG&E officials.
In anticipation of a severe “wind event” that increases the possibility of PG&E utility infrastructure igniting fires, utility company officials have announced that some areas of Contra Costa and Alameda counties will experience additional shutoffs starting at 11 p.m. on Tuesday into mid-day Wednesday.
So far, however, PG&E officials do not plan for Alamo, Danville, Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton or San Ramon to be affected by those additional outages.
On Saturday, the utility company shut off the power to tens of thousands of residents in the Tri-Valley in anticipation of a severe wind event, marking the second time in October PG&E cut off power to millions of Californians.
Outages linger in large swaths of land in the North bay as well as pockets in east Danville and west Alamo, however PG&E officials estimated that power would be restored in Danville around 6 p.m. on Tuesday evening.
Residents can look up their neighborhood to see if they will be affected by additional outages, or check to see when their power may be restored, online at www.pge.com.
