PG&E: Be Prepared For Power Outages

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — With a spring storm system projected to hit the region late tonight and continuing into Saturday, PG&E is warning customers to be ready for potential power outages.

PG&E Senior Vice President Pat Hogan says, “Many Californians were looking forward to breaking out our sun glasses after a long winter, but we encourage everyone to have a plan for this week’s late-season storm and to be prepared for outages that could occur as a result of wet, windy weather conditions. We’re prepared to work around the clock to restore service safely and as quickly as possible.”

PG&E encourages residents to resupply emergency kits, never touch downed wires, stay clear of moving water, and be aware of any potential nearby hazard trees.
