    Very disappointed that today, 10/8 I checked this site to learn more about the outage in our area in Calaveras county- I could not find any helpful information on your site.

    Tuolumne county scheduled for noon power cut-off. Not in 14 years of seeing wind speeds of over 80 mph, has there been a fire event. I suspect some seriously suspicious behaviour of this state administration! Shut off my power, & I will find a way to bring legal suit. I’m a caregiver for my ma, & I am a disabled nam-era vet; we cannot afford back-up power costs! We cannot be without power for any amount of time. This action constitutes state overreach of authority! As a legal citizen, taxpayor, & ratepayor in good standing; the state does NOT have the authority to prohibit my right to safety & security, & reasonable comfort; absent absolute emergency conditions!!! minimal to moderate winds in the area does NOT constitute such an emergency! The facts of zero wind-caused fires in my area will well support my claim & petition.
