Thousands Without Power Sunday Afternoon Following Early-Morning Napa Quake
NAPA (CBS SF) — PG&E reports there were still about 17,000 customers in the North Bay without power late Sunday afternoon.
Most of those customers are in Napa County and in the City of Napa, according to utility spokesman J.D. Guidi.
That number is down from a high of 31,000 customers who lost power immediately after the earthquake.
Guidi said that the utility expected to restore service to a majority of its customers throughout the day Sunday, though Guidi did not give a specific hour of restoration.
A few outages may require additional time to restore, he said, and PG&E will communicate with those customers directly about service restoration.
About 20 earthquake-related gas-distribution outages have also been reported.
Guidi said that PG&E has received several hundred calls complaining about gas odors.
Crews were visiting the premises where each complaint originated, and investigating for any gas leaks, Guidi said.
PG&E has also completed an initial patrol of its gas transmission pipeline and has not identified any damage to it. However, the utility is now performing a second patrol out of an abundance of caution.
