From MCOES last night:
To protect public safety, PG&E will turn off power due to gusty winds and dry conditions combined with a heightened fire risk. Once the weather subsides and it is safe to do so, PG&E crews will begin inspecting power lines, repairing damaged equipment and restoring customers. Outages (weather event plus restoration time) could last longer than 48 hours. For planning purposes, Monterey County Office of Emergency Services suggests customers prepare for outages that could last several days.
PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff Outage Alert: Due to current weather forecasts, the Carmel Highlands south to the Big Sur area is currently under a Watch for a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). Below is the estimated shutoff and restoration for this event.
ESTIMATED EVENT SHUTOFF: Starting between 1800 on 10/14/20 and 2100 on 10/14/20. We expect weather to improve beginning at 0800 on 10/15/20. After severe weather has passed, we will inspect equipment before restoring power.
ESTIMATED EVENT RESTORATION: 10/16/20 by 2200.
