No Power Shutoffs in 7-Day Forecast

Post Date:11/01/2019 2:00 PM

PG&E is not currently expecting any Public Safety Power Shutoffs through Thursday, November 7, according to the company's seven-day forecast of shutoff potential in nine geographic zones. Marin County is in Zone 3.

In other power shutoff news, the City Council held a special meeting on Friday, November 1 at 8:30 a.m. to ratify the proclamation of a local emergency for Sausalito due to the conditions created by PG&E's de-energizing of the electrical system in Sausalito. By ratifying the declaration of a local emergency, the Council may improve the City's ability to recover costs should reimbursement funds become available from the State of California.

In his presentation about the power shutoff to the City Council, Police Chief John Rohrbacher reported that no crimes had been committed in Sausalito related to the shutoff. Twenty boats broke loose on Richardson Bay during the high winds on Sunday morning. The chief plans to present a more detailed after-action report, along with lessons learned by the City from the shutoff, at a later date.

In remarks from the dais, the members of the City Council thanked City staff and first responders for their efforts during the shutoff. Mollie Stone's and Driver's Market were also commended, along with others in the local business community, for continuing to provide services while the power was out.
