Shutoff: County residents may lose power at 7 a.m. Wednesday


Just over 29,000 customers will be impacted by the PG&E shutoffs, according to the electric and gas company’s latest update. Those possibly affected include customers living and working in Emigrant Gap, Grass Valley, Nevada City, North San Juan, Penn Valley, Rough and Ready, Washington, according to the same webpage update.


Nevada County residents may begin to lose power at 7 a.m. Wednesday, according to the latest update from the Nevada County Office of Emergency Services.

PG&E may receive the “weather all clear” to begin restoring power to customers at 8 a.m. Thursday, according to the update.

The information PG&E shared with the office of emergency services did not accompany an explanation why the power shutoff may begin earlier Wednesday, said Jenn Tamo, administrative analyst with the office of emergency services.

“It’s so dynamic but we’re attempting to communicate as best we can,” she said.
