Public Safety Power Shutoffs

Be Ready, Clearlake!

Pacific Gas and Electric Company has announced their intent to monitor local fire danger and extreme weather conditions in Lake County and Clearlake and evaluate whether to turn off electrical power. The decision and action to turn off power is made by PG&E and is based on a combination of factors. Factors include, but are not limited to: high winds, low humidity, dry vegetation, fire threat, on-the-ground observations and public safety risk. 

This information is taken directly from PG&E and local emergency responders and is subject to change.
