Pacific Electric and Gas staged yesterday at the Italian Picnic Grounds to begin inspecting power lines ahead of restoring power.

In Colusa County, on Wednesday, a PG&E employee was rattled on southbound Interstate 5 after a bullet shattered a window in his truck. The same day, a threatening letter was delivered to a PG&E facility. Many local residents have expressed outrage over the shutoff, calling it “ridiculous and unnecessary” and expressing anger that PG&E could shutdown power for “no apparent reason.”
