From Chief Steve McClintock, Mi Wuk Sugar Pine Fire Protection District
Here is a brief update from the 12:30 call with PG&E.
- PG&E has made the decision to move forward with the de-energization and they are notifying their customers at this time.
- Overall customer impact for this PSPS has increased to about 750,000.
- There is still no definitive word on when we should expect de-energization. As I mentioned previously, we could be in Phase 2 with de-energization at noon tomorrow but there is a chance we would be included in Phase 1, which would take place at midnight tonight. PG&E will have that information by this afternoon and I will pass it along as soon as I know.
- Cellular communications should still be intact throughout the duration of this event unless they experience damage from the winds.
