A Red Flag Warning forecasting high winds and conditions prime for wildfire is expected to darken tens of thousands of households throughout the 24/680 and rest of the Bay Area from Sunday night through Wednesday morning.
Pacific Gas & Electric Company officials announced Friday they will be cutting power to tens of thousands of households in 38 counties across northern and central California including Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma. San Francisco appears to have been spared.
Officials offered cautionary advice for residents who may find themselves in the dark. Customers who want to pinpoint if their home is among the residences expected to be blacked out may enter their address on the utility company’s outage map.
