The Bay Area’s largest storm of the season knocked out power to thousands of PG&E customers Wednesday in all areas of the region.
More than 21,000 customers were without power as of 5 p.m. Wednesday, nearly 15,100 of them in the North Bay. An outage at about 4:20 p.m. in Petaluma added to the North Bay total.
A tree branch brought down power lines in Marin County earlier in the day, but that has since been cleaned up. PG&E crews are working safely and as quickly as possible to restore the power in the areas affected.
Here are outages as of 5 p.m. Wednesday, affecting more than 21,000:
- San Francisco: 63
- Peninsula: 4,437
- North Bay: 14,726
- East Bay: 336
- South Bay: 1,732
PG&E reminded customers to stay away from downed power lines. Those who see a downed power line should keep themselves and others away from it, call 911 and call PG&E at 800-743-5000.
