Tree knocks out Cobb power; wind advisory issued

COBB – Winter weather conditions are believed to have been responsible for knocking out power in parts of Cobb Saturday afternoon.

At approximately 1:40 p.m. 854 customers lost power as the result of a tree going into power lines, said Brandi Ehlers of Pacific Gas and Electric Co.

The first 566 customers had power restored at 3:11 p.m., with the remaining 288 customers regaining power at 3:16 p.m., Ehlers said.

Throughout the day Cobb experienced snow showers and wind, according to Cobb resident Roger Kinney.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for Lake County that remains in effect through noon on Sunday, warning of 35 to 50 mile per hour wind gusts overnight and early Sunday morning.
