PG&E shuts off power amid California wildfires

Weather News

(KCRA) Hundreds of thousands of Californians are without power as dangerously windy weather prompts safety shutdowns.

Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) on Wednesday and Thursday cut power to around 179,000 customers to keep wind gusts from pummeling power lines and sparking even more devastating wildfires in the area.

PG&E says the outages could last 48 hours.
