While Southern California anticipates its first rain of the season, the state's largest utility warned it may shut off power for 750,000 people as high fire-risk conditions return to the northern part of the state.

Power outages could last from Wednesday morning to Thursday evening, Pacific Gas & Electric said, affecting customers in the Sierra Foothills and greater San Francisco Bay Area.

Customers received notification on the same day state lawmakers grilled PG&E's leadership on how it handled three widespread shutoffs last month, which later sparked an investigation by the California Public Utilities Commission.

I'd be pretty upset about the power shut-offs if I lived in NorCal.

PG&E are scumbags for not maintaining their infrastructure better than they have.

I thought this was due to dry conditions rather than infrastructure problems.

An evergreen post if there ever was one.

Maybe I do care- - Google tells me it's a concern about high winds causing things like trees to fall on power lines, sparking a fire since everything is so dry...

...and that PG&E is moving into bankruptcy.

Still not sure how this due to a failure to maintain infrastructure.

I mean, I'm a lot closer geographically to this problem than CD is and have probably heard more about it, so I'm not surprised he's unaware of their infrastructure problems, but.
