Original story...

PG&E has announced that there might be more power shut-offs again this week. Due to high winds in the forecast and low humidity, blackouts may occur in seventeen Sierra Foothills and North Bay Counties including (but not limited to): Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Joaquin, Solano, Sonoma, Tehama, Yolo, and Yuba counties.

If the shut-off happens, it's expected to take place Wednesday afternoon through midday Thursday (18-24 hours) and will be of a lesser scope than the blackout we experienced earlier this month.
