Over 200 PG&E Customers are without power in the areas east of Cambria and Orcutt.
The outages began Wednesday, Aug. 18, at 6:20 a.m. near Cambria and at 1:34 p.m. near Orcutt.
On Wednesday evening, PG&E told KSBY that 218 customers east of Orcutt and 58 customers east of Cambria could face a power outage through Thursday.
Because the areas facing the outages are in high fire threat areas, the power company is exercising caution as they work to restore power. PG&E says crews are patrolling the circuits facing the outage.
Thursday morning, the PG&E outage map counted 189 customers east of Orcutt still without power. 58 customers near Cambria were still without power.
Over 3,000 customers were faced with a similar outage in Atascadero. Power in Atascadero was restored at around 8:20 p.m. Wednesday.
PG&E says the outages were caused by equipment issues, and are not Public Safety Power Shutoffs.
