UPDATE 9:35 p.m.: The lights came back on briefly in East Quincy, but then a transformer blew near Sierra Park and the power went out again.
UPDATE 8:45 p.m.: The lights are back on in parts of Quincy, but portions of East Quincy are still without power.
UPDATE 7:52 p.m.: Sheriff Todd Johns said that PG&E is reporting that it’s a power line issue in the Caribou area of the Canyon, but restoration is unknown at this time.
PG&E is still working to restore power in the great Quincy area, but Plumas Sierra Rural Electric has restored power to its customers in East Quincy through Graeagle, using a backup source. PSREC is asking its customers to conserve as much as possible at this time.
Power has been intermittent for customers throughout American Valley and Eastern Plumas today. As of now, at 7:20 p.m., power remains out for most of Quincy. PG&E is aware of the problem and is working to restore power, but there is no estimated time of restoration. This is not tied to the Public Safety Power Shutoff.
Supervisor Lori Simpson and County Administrator Gabriel Hydrick have been working to get more information from PG&E, as has Plumas News, but have received no detailed info about the source of the problem or when it will be fixed.
