GRASS VALLEY (CBS13) – Another PG&E power shutoff is beginning to take effect across Northern California, leaving more than half a million customers in the dark.
The utility, which was still working to restore power following a weekend outage, will pull the plug on nearly 600,000 customers starting Tuesday morning.
PG&E says powerful winds will kick up and make for some dangerous fire conditions.
