Power On For Yankee Hill Residents

All the 106 PG&E customers who lost power this morning after a big rig took out a pole on Yankee Hill Road are back on the grid.

Most had their lights on by 11 a.m., but three customers didn´t get their electricity back until 3:15 p.m.

The outage happened when a big rig hauling asphalt clipped the power pole on Yankee Hill and knocked it across the roadway. Yankee Hill Road was closed past Sawmill Flat Road for a time.

The high-voltage line fell to the ground and even energized a nearby barbed-wire fence, but no one was hurt in the mishap.
