This morning PG&E reports nearly 25,000 customers are still without power.
Some PG&E customers in the Sierra have told KFBK it could be January 10 before their power is restored. The late year storms that slammed Northern California are responsible for causing widespread damage and disrupting power lines for counties across California. The utility said the weather caused damage to about 1,700 locations, including 700 locations in Nevada County and 300 in El Dorado County. Warming shelters and community resource centers have been opened to help distribute to-go bags for people affected. Customers in the affected counties who would like support can call PG&E at 1-800-477-3333 or visit the resource center page here. They can also find winter weather resources on the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services site here.
PG&E say they will issue a more detailed schedule of power restoration later today.
