Northern California’s latest fire-prevention power shutoffs are ending but forecasters warn there will be another round of gusty offshore winds starting late in the weekend.
About three-quarters of the 31,000 Pacific Gas & Electric customers who were blacked out Wednesday night had power restored by Thursday evening and the remainder are expected to be powered up Friday.
PG&E advises that a potentially larger public safety power shutoff could begin Sunday morning.
The National Weather Service says the San Francisco Bay Area will have initial winds Sunday afternoon and then a stronger burst that night. Southern California will have Santa Ana winds on Monday.
