The County of Mendocino has been notified by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) that power may be turned off in our area due to high risk weather conditions on November 20, 2019. At this time approximately 3,000 Mendocino County customers are estimated to be effected in the following areas: McNab Ranch south through Hopland to the County line and the Gualala area along the coast approximately half way to Point Arena. Chief Executive Officer Carmel Angelo stated, “Like past events the information  is very dynamic and can change minute by minute. Please be aware the County is dependent on PG&E to provide accurate, updated information that can be shared with the public. Mendocino County will continue to closely monitor the situation and share update as we receive them from PG&E.”

De-energization will be initiated by PG&E and is estimated to occur at 5:00am on November 20, 2019, prior to the start of the 8:00am wind event. PG&E estimates the wind event will last 24 hour, concluding on November 21, 2019, at 8:00am. Following the “all clear” on the morning of November 21, 2019, PG&E will begin power restoration. The County will release any updated information on the power outage and re-energization timelines as they become available.
