Sonora, CA — The storm system this past weekend caused havoc for many PG&E customers.
We reported earlier that thousands lost power on Sunday between Tuolumne and Calaveras counties, and the number was reduced to hundreds by Monday.
PG&E reports that all-in-all, 851,000 of its customers lost power during the storm system. 99-percent of the customers have now been restored, with the remaining outages scattered in very isolated areas where roads remain closed due to heavy snowfall and debris flows.
