Posted on August 17, 2021 by Sonoma Valley Sun

PG&E is reacting to a Red Flag Weather Warning with a preemptive power shutdown in portions of Sonoma County.

As of 5 pm, it looks like in the Sonoma Valley this will impact some residents in the hills east of Highway 12 from Calistoga Road/St. Helena Road in the North though Pythian, Nelligan, Cavedale/Trinity, and over to the areas north east of Sonoma like Moon Mountain, Norrbom, and Gehricke. West of Arnold/Highway 12, the areas in/near Jack London State Park and Sonoma Mountain including North/upper Diamond A area and the west side of the mountain will be impacted as well.

The warning extends from 11 pm tonight (Tuesday) through 11 am Wednesday morning. Information changes quickly, and this post may become out of date.

The PG&E shutdown is set to impact around 1,800 Sonoma County residents this evening. Information changes quickly, and this post may become out of date.

There will be a Community Resource Center in Sonoma at the First Congregational Church of Sonoma at 252 W Spain Street, open until 10pm Tuesday and open at 8am Wednesday for those without power to charge their devices and get updates from PG&E.

Even if you don’t lose power, it is possible that you may lose internet service if your service is provided by Comcast within hours of the power being shut off. For more information, you can visit https://california.comcast.com/psps/
