MARIN COUNTY (KRON) – Some residents in Marin County, Alameda County, and Contra Costa County may potentially be affected by a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) projected for Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday.

Authorities said the outage may impact 23,345 metered locations in Marin County, but the exact neighborhoods that will lose power has yet to be announced.

The estimated power shutoff is projected to start at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20.

PG&E expects to receive the “all-clear” and start line inspections to resume restoring power starting at 8 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 21st.

“This means it could take 24-48 hours from the start of inspections for everyone to have power restored,” the Marin County Sheriff’s Office said.

The City of Berkeley also tweeted a statement saying parts of Berkeley “will likely experience” this power shutoff “starting in the early morning of Wednesday, Nov. 20.”

In Contra Costa County, parts of Orinda, Moraga, and Lafayette may also lose power beginning Wednesday at 9 a.m.
