Starting as early as 11 a.m. Sunday, 1,500 PG&E customers in Berkeley could have their power cut as part of a planned power outage, the city reports.
Some 17,000 PG&E customers in Berkeley could be affected Tuesday evening by rolling blackouts “if people do not limit electricity usage,” the city says.
Tens of thousands of PG&E customers in Berkeley could lose power Tuesday and Wednesday because of high energy demands statewide, the city says. PG&E said there were ultimately no rolling outages in California on Monday.
Frustrated with the official handling, some people in the disability community organized their own emergency response efforts during recent blackouts.
Most addresses in the city had reportedly gotten their electricity back by Monday evening, authorities reported.
The city of Berkeley has warned affected residents to prepare to be without power until Friday.
More than 7,000 PG&E customers in Berkeley remained without power Sunday night and relief may still be days away. A new blackout is set to begin Tuesday in Alameda County. Details are limited.
