High winds have been blowing trees into overhead lines which has resulted in multiple outages and down lines in Buena Vista and throughout the city. PG&E is working to restore service to all customers.
This has also resulted in a number of roads been shut down as line crews secure and repair the downed wires.
Downed power lines are dangerous; never touch them. For safety’s sake, always assume that a fallen power line is live, and follow these guidelines:
Avoid touching the downed line with your hand or an object, such as a stick, broom or pole.
Avoid touching anything, such as a car, object or equipment, or anyone who is in contact with a fallen power line.
Keep children and pets away from fallen electric lines.
Avoid driving over a fallen power line.
Call 911 immediately to report a fallen power line.
If you are concerned about trees that appear too close to power lines or dead near power lines, please call 1-800-743-5000 (1-800-PGE-5000) and request a visit from an arborist.
