UPDATE (11:53 a.m.) - SCE told city officials that the potential PSPS for Sunday night has been averted and will not occur.


ORIGINAL STORY (10:52 a.m.) - A potential 48-hour Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) for parts of Goleta could begin Sunday night.

The city of Goleta says Southern California Edison (SCE) may shut off the power at any time from 6 p.m. to midnight. These times are subject to change depending on the weather conditions.

The potential power outage zone includes two circuits, which lie next to each other and include neighborhoods mostly north of Highway 101 between exits Los Carneros and Winchester Canyon/Hillister Avenue.

The rest of Goleta is currently not under PSPS consideration.

To check if your home is in these circuits, you can refer to the Public Safety Power Shutdown Interactive Map. City officials recommend preparing for a potential power shutdown as soon as possible if you live either of these circuits.

You can also check for updated PSPS considerations and active power outages by going to the SCE website.
