We have been notified by PG&E that power may be turned off in parts of southern Mendocino County due to high risk weather conditions on November 20, 2019. This should not affect the Willits area as far as we know.
At this time approximately 3,000 Mendocino County customers are estimated to be affected 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. This information is dynamic and can change at any time. We are dependent on PG&E to provide accurate, updated information that can be shared with the public. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and share updates as we receive them from PG&E and the County of Mendocino.
The current information we have is that de-energization will be initiated by PG&E at approximately 5:00am on November 20 prior to the start of the 8:00am wind event. PG&E estimates the wind event will last 24 hours, concluding on November 21 at 8:00am. Following the “all clear” on the morning of November 21 PG&E will begin to restore power. We plan to release updated information on the power outage and re-energization timelines as it become available.
