Thousands Of Pg&e Customers Still Without Power After Weekend Storm

About 185,000 PG&E customers in the Bay Area were still without power by noon Monday, following a weekend storm that battered the region. The number of customers affected continues to decline as crews work diligently to repair downed wires and damaged equipment.

The South Bay currently has the highest number of outages, with 64,239 customers affected. In the North Bay, there are 59,280 customers without power, while the Peninsula has 38,730 affected customers. The East Bay has 16,709 outages, and in San Francisco, 6,139 customers remain without power, according to PG&E.

As of Monday afternoon, nearly 50,000 PG&E customers were still experiencing power outages across the Central Coast. Santa Cruz County had around 22,000 customers affected, Monterey County had over 27,300 customers in the dark, and San Benito County had just 19 customers without power. The storm also resulted in several road closures, including portions of Highway 9 and Highway 35 in Santa Cruz County, Highway 1 in Big Sur, and other local roads.

To provide assistance to those without power, PG&E has set up Resource Centers in various locations, including Asilomar Conference Center Social Hall, Monterey Public Library, and County of Monterey Seaside Library. Additionally, several schools were closed due to power outages and storm damage, affecting students in Pacific Grove Unified and San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District.

All evacuation warnings and orders have been lifted for Monterey County, allowing residents to return home safely. However, Shelter in Place orders are still in effect for areas of Arroyo Seco to the west of Carmel Valley Road.
