PG&E advised Alameda County that they will be shutting off power starting Wednesday to 600,000 people in select areas of Northern California, including 35,000 customers in Alameda County, where the total population is 1.6 million people. This power shutoff is planned due to concerns about fire danger to power lines in California.
