Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties, CA -- PG & E says areas of Groveland, East Sonora, Twain Harte, Jamestown and Murphys are without power. The lights are out for nearly 1000 residents. PG & E says crews are having problems getting to the site of the power outage due to the slick icy roads. There is no word on when power will be back on in those areas.
If your power goes out you can call 1-800 PGE-5000 to report it and get updates on estimated repair times.
