Update: Power Outages Across Mother Lode On Thanksgiving
Update at 11:05am: When it comes to PG&E power outages on this Thanksgiving Day, the West Point and Railroad Flat areas remain the hardest hit, with around 2,000 customers without electricity. Outside of Forest Meadows there are around 160 without power. In the greater Twain Harte area, the number of outages has been reduced to about 200. There are an additional 73 without power in Cedar Ridge. In the Groveland region, there are still around 160 without power. Of those, 107 have been without electricity since Wednesday morning due to an equipment issue. Since the outages are so widespread, PG&E is having difficulty giving an estimated time of full restoration.
