PG&E says it will shut off power to as many as 25,000 customers in 20 counties and six tribal areas starting early Monday as a red flag warning starts over much of the region.

Here's when shut offs are expected to start Monday in different areas:

  • 4 a.m.: Colusa, Glenn, Tehama, Butte, Plumas, Grindstone Rancheria, Mooretown Rancheria
  • 5 a.m.: Tehama, Yolo, Napa, Solano
  • 5:30 a.m.: Yolo, Colusa, Contra Costa, Alameda, Stanislaus, San Benito, Kern, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Fresno, Cortina Rancheria
  • 6 a.m.: Yolo, Shasta, Tehama, Napa, Sonoma, Lake, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Middletown Rancheria
  • 12 p.m.: Kern
  • 6 p.m.: San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara

While many counties affected could see fewer than 100 customers have power shut off by the utility, as many as 4,000 could be without service in Tehama, Lake and Solano counties. Placer County, which initially was expected to be included, was removed from the warning Sunday.

Winds are forecast to reach as much as 30-50 mph Monday into Tuesday. That paired with incredibly dry conditions has led the National Weather Service to issue a red flag warning for much of Northern California from 11 p.m. Sunday through 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Click the search bar in the bottom left corner of this map to see if your address falls within the areas that could be impacted. This map is approximate, but PG&E also has an address lookup tool that will provide more exact information.

If you do fall within the blackout area, this does not mean that you will definitely lose power, just that you are within the area that PG&E may shut off power to.
