The Power Shutoff is projected to start Wednesday November 20th at around 4:00PM. PG&E expects to receive the all clear and start line inspections on Thursday November 21st at 0800AM. This means it could take 24 – 48 hrs from the start of inspections for everyone to have power restored.
While Marin is projected to be affected by the outage, the exact neighborhoods that will lose power is still unknown. Attached is a screen shot of PG&E’s estimated outage area as of 4:09am on November 18. Of course, this is subject to change and is a fluid and developing situation.
Please prepare now: until fire season concludes, Marin County remains threatened by future Public Safety Power Shutoffs. We must all do our part to prepare ourselves and neighbors for extended outages of up to 7 days. Review this list to prepare: https://www.ready.
