As Appearing in the California Globe
None of the nine Bay Area counties are included
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. announced Thursday that “Public Safety Power Shutoffs” would take place Sunday and Monday in northern California and Sierra foothills.
However, not one of the nine Bay Area counties are included, MSN reported, despite that CalFire reports that the Glass Fire in Napa County is still “active,” with 67,484 Acres destroyed, 280 structures damaged, 1,545 structures destroyed, and only 74% containment.
PG&E explains: “A warming and drying trend will then commence next week as high pressure builds across California. This pattern could also lead to the development of offshore winds around the middle of next week and will be monitored closely. Although the cooler weather and potential for precipitation this weekend will allow fuels to recover some moisture, fuels are expected to quickly dry out once warmer conditions return next week. Fire danger remains seasonably high.”
