PG&E De-Energization Update, 12: 30 p.m.

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.

Thanks!

From Chief McClintock: The Mi Wuk Sugar Pine Fire Station will have the capability to charge cell phones as needed. Don’t hesitate to stop by.

About Blythe

My husband Russ and I have been full time Mi Wuk residents since 2003 and part time residents since 1987. Reality says that it's time to move on though and we'll be moving to Boise, Idaho at the end of 2019. I've been on the MAHA board for 'a long time' and am happy to be there so I can know what's going on in our community. I've also been on the MWSP Fire Protection District Fire Board since 2016 (or was it 2015?). You can always reach me at blythek@mac.com .
