    Pacific Gas and Electric cuts power from Monday to approximately 25,000 customers in 22 counties in California due to potential dry gusts that could increase the risk of electrical equipment catching fire He said he could.

    The range was reduced from 44,000 customers in 32 counties, first announced on Saturday. This potential PSPS event is expected to focus on the North Sierra Foot Hills, North Bay and North Coast regions, with minimal impact on customers in the Bay Area and Central Valley.

When offshore winds are expected to occur in northern and part of central California. The warning will continue until the end of Tuesday and the strongest wind is expected on Monday.
