Power Outage Planned For Bear Valley Area

About 1,000 PG&E customers in the Bear Valley, Mount Reba areas along Highway 4 will be without electricity today from 11 a.m. until about 2 p.m.

Judy Mello with PG&E says the power company has a planned outage scheduled today to repair power lines damaged by last month´s storm.

The work is in rugged areas of Alpine county near the Ski resort, which will also be affected.

Crews will use a helicopter to set new power poles and string power lines in the area.
