PG&E warns of power outages for public safety in Napa County on Sunday due to high winds


NAPA COUNTY. (KGO) — Approximately 200 customers have been notified by PG&E on a possible public safety power outage in Napa County on Sunday.

Power was scheduled to be off beginning at 6 a.m. and then 7 a.m., but no outages have yet been reported in Napa County.

PG&E meteorologists watch for high-speed winds.

Strong winds combined with drought conditions could increase the risk of fires in the region.

It is expected to affect 85 customers north of Calistoga along Highway 29 near the Robert Louis Stevenson State Park area, PG&E says.

If the shutdown occurs, it is expected to last until 3 p.m. Monday.
