UPDATE: PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff

Posted on October 10, 2019 at 7:16 pm by Clay Curtin

As of Thursday, October 10, there is no further immediate public safety power outage threat affecting communities in San Mateo County. While the City of Menlo Park continuously monitored the situation, no shutoffs affected Menlo Park residents during this incident.

For those in, or visiting, affected areas
PG&E has begun visual inspections of its transmission lines in San Mateo County, paving the way for restoration of power to nearly 15,000 customers in the impacted southern and coastal parts of the county. During visual inspections, you can expect to see low-flying helicopters and additional PG&E ground crews in the affected areas.

For communities that were impacted, PG&E has advised that inspections, repairs and restoration of normal electric service may still take several hours or days. Residents in affected areas are advised to exercise safety precautions until power is fully restored.
