California

These are the locations where PG&E will open community resource centers for power shutoff

Update: Shutoff begins in Placer, Nevada and Yuba counties just after midnight Wednesday

In response to the possibility that Pacific Gas and Electric Co. may interrupt power to nearly 800,000 customers of northern and central California under the threat of wildfire beginning at midnight Wednesday, the utility announced Tuesday it would open dozens of resource centers to accommodate the potentially 2 millions Californians or more who could be without power for hours or even days.

PG&E public safety power shutoff warning issued Tuesday covers a massive swath of the state’s Sierra and coastal foothill communities as well as more populated areas centered on San Francisco Bay. These are the locations where people can go to recharge cell phones and find restrooms, bottled water and air conditioning. PG&E said the centers will be open at 8 a.m., stay open during daylight hours and will be able to seat up to 100 people.
