The County of Mendocino is currently monitoring the scope of the October 29 Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event in Mendocino County. This event is very dynamic, and the County is dependent on PG&E to provide accurate, updated information that can be shared with the public.

Mendocino County is still experiencing county-wide outages as part of the PG&E October 29 PSPS event. The weather event is estimated to conclude early tomorrow morning, Wednesday, October 30, and PG&E estimates an “all clear” by 8:00am. Following the “all clear” PG&E staff will begin assessment of the power lines followed by restoration of power.  PG&E estimates customers impacted by the October 29 will have power restored by sundown on Friday, November 1. The County will release any updated information on the power outages and re-energization timelines as they become available.
