High winds and heavy rainfall are resulting in numerous downed trees and power lines.
Tuolumne County now has around 2,200 customers without electricity, according to PG&E. 301 are in the greater Sonora area, and 183 are in Twain Harte. Those customers should be restored by mid-morning.

1,200 are without power in Pinecrest and 460 in Strawberry. PG&E says those customers may be without electricity until mid afternoon.
