Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is monitoring a severe wind event expected to start Wednesday (Oct. 23) and has issued a warning for a potential public safety power shutoff, or PSPS, for many Northern California counties.

This is the second such advisory in two weeks. Under the new advisory, like the first one, power on the UC Davis main campus will not be affected. However, conditions could change. If they do, we will notify the campus community through WarnMe and other channels. You can find information on potential wildfire impacts to campus here.

It is possible that the city of Davis and surrounding areas could lose power while UC Davis’ main campus is not affected. City and county notifications are available at the following links:

See the online PG&E Safety and Alert Center for the latest updates, plus the utility's PSPS address-lookup tool and PSPS area map.
