Electricity may be turned off in parts of southern Santa Barbara County later this week.
The warning of a possible Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) issued Tuesday by Southern California Edison is for parts of Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria on Friday, Oct. 18, from 3-5 p.m.
Williams’ office says if a shutoff were to occur, people should be prepared to be without power for three to five days.
County officials remind people to keep cell phones and portable chargers charged, gas tanks full, electric vehicles charges along with having non-perishable food and water on hand.
