Update #2: October 29 PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff Event

Post Date:10/29/2019 5:00 PM

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. Mendocino County received a call from PG&E’s Emergency Operation Center at 4:15pm today to provide details regarding power restoration over the next 24 hours.

PG&E is attempting to restore power tonight to the south coast from Gualala to Point Arena. In addition, PG&E is working towards restoring power tomorrow morning at the Philo substation which will power the Philo area and the coast from Point Arena to the Town of Mendocino.  PG&E is prioritizing restoration of the transmission line feeding the greater Ukiah area in hopes power will be restored tomorrow afternoon.  Once the Ukiah area is restored PG&E will have more capacity with their power lines to restore the northern portions of the County including Willits and Fort Bragg. The County will continue to update the public as new information is received from PG&E.
