Update: Power Outage Impacted Columbia

Sponsored by:

Update at 8:40 am: PG&E reports that customers impacted by Sunday evening’s power outage have now been restored. The company has not released a cause.

Original story posted at 7 am: Columbia, CA — 338 PG&E customers have been without power since around 11:30 pm on Sunday.

PG&E says the customers should be restored later morning, likely by 11 am. Columbia has seen various outages in recent months due to the Enhanced Powerline Settings that turn off power proactively if they are threatened by an object, such as a falling tree branch. The goal is to prevent wildfires.

PG&E has not stated the cause of last night’s outage, and notes that it remains “under investigation.” The outage has been impacting customers west of the State Park.
