Residents in that area had been told to shelter due to live power lines Wednesday evening, but sheriff’s officials lifted the order at 10:05 p.m. Police had urged residents around 6:30 p.m. to go to the nearest place of safety because the power lines were still energized.

The outage began at about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday after a tree fell on some power lines. As of 12:20 a.m., 34 customers remain without power, per PG&E’s outage website.
