Tree Branch Causes Power Outage

Sonora, Ca — A tree branch caused some Motherlode residents to briefly go without power this afternoon.

PG and E Spokesperson Nicole Tam says a branch fell into a power line at the intersection of Alderman Rd. and Longeway Rd. in Sonora. The incident occurred at 1:43pm, and it affected 1,025 customers.

She says it serves as a good reminder that customers should contact them if they notice any dead vegetation or branches near power lines on their property. They always like to fix potential problems before they actually become one.

PG and E was able to restore power within 40 minutes.
