Update: Widespread PG&E Outage In Calaveras County
Update: A power outage in Calaveras County impacting 4,181 customers has been repaired.
PG&E noted that the outage, which occurred just after 11:30 a.m., was related to a vehicle accident involving a power pole in Angels Camp near Bret Harte High so it was unrelated to the rolling Flex Alert outages that officials had been warning about.
The outage involved customers in parts of Angels Camp, Copperopolis, Vallecito, Douglas Flat, Murphys, and San Andreas.
