While many remain without power, more shut offs could be on the way. According to KCRA:

PG&E said it is monitoring another potential wind event that could trigger another round of public safety power shutoffs.

The wind event is forecast for Tuesday.

“The dry, windy weather pattern is expected to reach from the northern portions of PG&E’s service territory and down through the Sacramento Valley, before spreading into the central areas of the state, including the Bay Area,” the utility said Sunday in a statement.

PG&E said the power shutoffs could happen Tuesday and potentially last until Thursday. The midweek power shutoffs could impact portions of 32 counties.

The portions of the counties that may be impacted include, but are not limited to:

  • Alameda
  • Alpine
  • Amador
  • Butte
  • Calaveras
  • Colusa
  • Contra Costa
  • El Dorado
  • Glenn
  • Humboldt
  • Kern
  • Lake
  • Marin
  • Mariposa
  • Mendocino
  • Napa
  • Nevada
  • Placer
  • Plumas
  • San Mateo
  • Santa Clara
  • Santa Cruz
  • Shasta
  • Sierra
  • Solano
  • Sonoma
  • Stanislaus
  • Tehama
  • Trinity
  • Tuolumne
  • Yolo
  • Yuba

The reason for the blackouts is because weather forecasts show wind gusts could reach as high as 80 mph, the highest wind force since the 2017 fires.
