SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – PG&E is moving ahead with planned shutoffs, starting around 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

The purple dots represent more than 100,000 people without power in Northern California due to the Public Safety Power Shutoffs just before 4 p.m. Wednesday.

According to a statement issued Wednesday by a spokesperson for the utility, the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) will begin around 2 p.m. in the Foothills, 3 p.m. in the North Bay counties, and around 1 a.m. Thursday in the areas threatened by wildfire conditions in San Mateo and Kern counties.

After the winds, PG&E says it will inspect power lines and restore power, which they hope to complete 48 hours after the wind event ends.

The shutoff is expected to affect 179,000 customers in 17 counties: Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, El Dorado, Kern, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Mateo, Sierra, Sonoma, Tehama, and Yuba.

If you are affected by the PSPS, you would already have been notified, PG&E says.

Following is a list of community resource centers PG&E is opening. Each center has air conditioning, seating for up to 100 people, restrooms, bottled water, and a place where people can recharge their electronic devices.
