1. Magnitude of the Storm last week

According to PG&E, this week’s winter storm has been the largest single storm, producing multiple customer outages in nearly 30 years, affecting more than 1.4 million customers. High gusts and strong sustained winds have caused an incredible amount of damage across PG&E service area, including breaking or toppling 728 poles, requiring technicians to restring or repair more than 2,000 spans of powerlines, and damaging or destroying 357 cross arms and 247 transformers. 

In the end, as much as we want to recognize the magnitude of this storm we understand how impactful this last storm was to homes that were affected. Even though power was restored to many homes before 8 pm on February 7, we share your concern and have voiced our belief that PG&E should take the lead in creating a more resilient system.

PG&E is planning to come to a council meeting to provide a complete summary of events and response to the January atmospheric river storm that caused the blackout along Page Mill. We will post more details in a future City Council agenda as well as in the Weekly.

Stay tuned and remind those that are interested to subscribe to this weekly
