PG&E update: More power to be restored in Plumas tonight, tomorrow

PG&E has restored power to thousands of customers in the North Valley who were impacted by Monday’s winter storm, but some still remain without power locally in Butte and Plumas counties.

The last time Northern California had storms of this magnitude was back in 2016, the last relatively wet water year in recent years.  Snowfall totals associated with this storm have in some cases broken snow accumulation records for the month of December.

Crews have been coming across hazardous conditions and access issues. PG&E will be flying a helicopter today that will aide in making repairs.  Customers who have been without power for several days are in the following hardest hit areas:

  • For 100 customers in Quincy and Keddie, power is expected to be restored by midnight tonight, for others in the area, the have been notified it will be Saturday night.
  • The estimated time power will be restored to customers in Strawberry Valley and Clipper Mills is Saturday by midnight.
  • We have notified the 360 customers in LaPorte area that power will be restored by midnight Monday night, the 3rd.

That means the remaining 600 customers impacted from Monday’s storm in these two counties will have power by midnight Saturday night, with the exception of La Porte.
