PG&E Power Outages Could Last Through Wednesday

167,000 customers in 21 counties throughout California have their power turned off in an effort to prevent more devastating wildfires.

Power was turned off for many around 9 p.m. Monday and could continue through Wednesday night.

PG&E said the decision to turn the power off was based on strong winds and dry, hot weather conditions.

Winds have died down Wednesday morning. making it easier for PG&E crews to conduct safety inspections and restoration activities during the day.

PG&E said it will need to conduct inspections of approximately 10,625 miles of transmission and distribution lines.
