DISCOVERY BAY (CBS SF) — More than 6,000 customers in the Discovery Bay area of Contra Costa County will be without gas heat until Monday night because PG&E officials have to shut off service to make repairs, a PG&E spokeswoman and a statement by Contra Costa County Supervisor Mary Piepho said Sunday.

The supervisor’s office issued a statement to residents at 4:50 p.m. telling residents of the outage.

PG&E spokeswoman Jacqueline Ratto said the recent cold weather in the Bay Area prompted the service disruption.

Residents with gas heaters, gas water heaters, gas stoves, gas fireplaces and other gas appliances must plan to be without the devices until about 5 p.m. Monday.

Ratto said PG&E officials have opened a warming center at Timber Point Elementary School at 40 Newberry Lane in Discovery Bay, a community in unincorporated Contra Costa County.

The low temperature in the Discovery Bay area Monday morning will be in the low to mid 30s and the high temperature Monday will be about 50 degrees, National Weather Service forecaster Bob Benjamin said.
