Third-World Nation of California to Again cut Power to 17 Counties

Californians need to prepare for power outages as another set of planned blackouts are about to hit 17 counties in Northern California. Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. has begun to cut power to about 450,000 customers in Northern California.

The latest string of power cuts comes less than a month after PG&E cut off power for several days to nearly 800,000 customers across Northern and Central California because they could not guarantee California’s electric grid could handle the forecasted 20MPH winds.

Well, slightly windy conditions are yet again wreaking havoc on California and the latest round of electricity shutoffs could last for at least 48 hours.

The shutoffs are expected to begin around 2 p.m. in the Sierra Foothills, 3 p.m. in the North Bay counties, and approximately 1 a.m. Thursday in affected areas of San Mateo and Kern counties,” PG&E said. “Once the high winds subside, PG&E will inspect the de-energized lines to ensure they were not damaged during the wind event, and then restore power. PG&E will safely restore power in stages as quickly as possible, with the goal of restoring the vast majority of customers within 48 hours after the weather has passed.”

The planned blackout will impact people in 17 counties, mainly in the Sierra Foothills and the North Bay — including Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, El Dorado, Kern, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Mateo Sierra, Sonoma, Tehama, and Yuba.

Earlier this week, PG&E Chief Executive Officer William Johnson said these intentional outages could go on for the next decade.

“I think this is probably a 10-year timeline to get to a point where it’s really ratcheted down significantly,” PG&E Chief Executive Officer William Johnson said Friday at an emergency meeting of the California Public Utilities Commission.

The utility said these shutdowns are necessary because the National Weather Service has indicated a high risk of wildfires due to dry and windy conditions. Power lines can spark fires when blown down by wind or when falling tree limbs or other vegetation come into contact with them.

UPDATE: Now Southern California Edison is warning it could cut power to 308,000 customers in seven counties to prevent winds from damaging electrical equipment and starting wildfires.

  1. This is a somewhat moronic article from a site that is supposedly knowledgeable about survival and the environment. You do realize that much of California is an arid desert and large swaths of it have burned already, right? You write that these arid and windy conditions are ripe for a fire. Honestly, it’s better to prevent a from starting than fighting a massive forest fire after a storm, kind of like all those recent ones that have been just so easy to put out and control.

    • The article is dead on accurate. No other state in the country has these electrical problems, and that includes all the surrounding desert states that somehow manage to keep their power on during windstorms, which by the say winds barely hit 15mph. California is a shit hole, the forest fires have nothing to do with the power lines they are because of years of mismanagement and liberal policies that won’t allow underbrush to be removed or old trees to be cut down for “environmental reasons”. I also believe these fires are intentionally being set by Mexican drug cartels to go after the legal marijuana in California that has severely impacted their money streams.

    • The only moron is the one who thinks cutting of power to millions in the year 2019 is somehow acceptable. Article is right, California is now a third-world country. They have all the diseases of a third world country and now they cant even keep the fucking lights on. Pathetic. And by the way, I live in the desert in Arizona and somehow we manage to keep our power on when it gets windy.

      • Arizona is a totally different environment and under a more stable management systems. Can’t compare the Kalifornia Libtards to any other state. Much of the state suffers from a multitude of mental illnesses to include environmental terrorism—self induced.

        Most of the Western states have forest fires all of the time but again under totally different circumstances and management. Agree that Kalifornia is out of control. It’s best to get the hell out of the state if feasible and if at all practicable.

        I foresee in the not-too-distant future that most of the state of Kalifornia will be declared a national disaster and will request Billions of Dollars in Federal disaster relief to try to fix it….which will fail of course. That would be like putting a band aid on a compound fracture.

  2. This was David Rothchild’$ PG & E = TRYING TO RETALIATE AGAINST TRUMP SENDING THE MARIENES INTO CALIFORNICATION TO RESCUE CHILDREN OF CHILD TRAFFICING. Rothchild’$ are Satanic Pedovores who rape, torture & eat children. The Marines rescued 2,100 children in shipping containers DURING THE LAST CA POWER SHUT DOWN! Rothchild($) hoped the power shutdown would thwart the Marienes effort = NICE TRY SATANIC SCUM. THAT SHITBAG ELIJAH CUMMINGS WAS ALSO RUNNING WITH THE ROTHCHILDS & WAS EXECUTED BY MILITARY TRIBUNAL & THE LIBERAL COMMIE FAGGOT SATANIC BOUGHT & OWNED MEDIA WHORES LIED & SAID CUMMINGS DIED OF NATURAL CAUSES. A FUCKING HANGING /OR\ FIRING SQUAD IS NOT NATURAL IN MY BOOK. pete helfrich
