PG&E informed County and City officials today that critical current weather conditions persist and will result in a power shutoff early Wednesday morning (10/9) through Thursday (10/10). Residents are advised to check the PG&E map here: https://www.pge.com/en_US/safety/emergency-preparedness/natural-disaster/wildfires/psps-service-impact-map.page. The City and County are aware that there have been difficulties with PG&E’s website due to high volume of use. Residents can also visit this County GIS map (https://sonomacounty.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=2cb4401e1fc0494dbf9d9e22aa794617) to find more information specific to Cotati and Sonoma County.

PG&E has indicated they expect to begin to restore power on Thursday, October 10 at about 12 p.m (noon). It may take them up to five days to fully restore power to all customers across Northern California. PG&E expects damage to their system which could cause restoration delays. Winds may also impact their infrastructure outside of their planned power shutoff areas. All residents are advised to be prepared to lose power.

PG&E will open a Community Resource Center for impacted residents in Sonoma County at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building located at 1351 Maple Ave, Santa Rosa. The Community Resource Center will open Wednesday, October 9, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will open daily until power is restored.

The County of Sonoma and City of Cotati Emergency Operation Centers (EOCs) have been activated to support residents and to respond to the impacts of an extended power outage.
