Alerts sent out to some PG&E customers in San Luis Obispo County recently warning of scheduled power shutoffs were a mistake, officials say.

The Morro Bay Fire Department says some in PG&E's "Zone 6" were notified via email, text or phone of a scheduled shutoff.

There are no shutoffs scheduled this week in San Luis Obispo County and the alert was sent in error, according to fire officials.

KSBY has reached out to PG&E for additional information but has not yet heard back.

The information comes after more than 20,000 Southern California Edison (SCE) customers were under consideration over the weekend for possible public safety power shutoffs in Santa Barbara County.

SCE's website did not show any customers in Santa Barbara County being under consideration for shutoffs as of Monday afternoon.
