PG&E: County power outages mostly resolved

LAKE COUNTY – Most of the county's residents had power restored to them by Sunday following outages that resulted from powerful winter storms that arrived late last week.


Overall, it was another day of more mile weather on Sunday, although forecasters continue to predict more rain this week.


That break in the weather proved important to Pacific Gas and Electric power crews.


On Sunday afternoon PG&E reported that most of the power outages in the county had been resolved.


PG&E spokesperson Jana Schuering said about 70 people were still out of power in Clearlake Sunday evening, with about 100 other customers between Clearlake and Hopland also believed to still be out of power.


Schuering said crews planned to work through the night to restore the power supply to those customers.


About 5,500 residents in Mendocino County – most of them along the coast – were still out of power Sunday night, Schuering said.


Since the storms hit Friday, about 2 million PG&E customers from Eureka to Bakersfield have lost power, the company reported. Of those, 1.9 million have had power restored.


As of Sunday, PG&E reported that the storms had damaged 527 miles of power line, 567 poles, 536 transformers and 696 crossarms throughout the company's coverage area.
