Here we go again: PG&E may cut power to 750,000 California residents this week

Pacific Gas & Electric is preparing to potentially cut power to up to 250,000 Northern California customers mid-week as the forecast calls for desiccating winds that could damage equipment and spark wildfires.

If you figure an average of three people per household after all, a single customer could be an apartment building with 50 residents this event could affect approximately up to 750,000 people.

The intentional blackout is tentatively scheduled for portions of 19 counties in the Sierra Foothills, North Valley and North Bay. The preliminary list of counties posted in a press release Sunday night includes: Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Solano, Sonoma, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Yolo and Yuba.

More details started to trickle out late Monday morning from local officials and police departments. The Marin County Sheriff's Office confirmed an estimated 23,345 customers (or about 70,000 people) would lose power starting at 4 p.m. Wednesday. It's not yet clear exactly which neighborhoods in Marin will be affected.
