More than 4,000 residents without electricity in San Diego County

SAN DIEGO. On November 26, nearly 4,500 San Diego County residents were still without electricity due to a planned power outage launched on Thanksgiving Day to prevent wildfires.

During high winds, a public safety blackout is a way to reduce the risk of sparks from faulty or damaged equipment.

While mountainous areas and valleys are still threatened by public safety power outages, some 4,452 county residents woke up without power on Friday morning, according to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG & E).

Outages were scheduled at around 7:30 am in the cities of Alpine, Boulevard, Campo Reservation, Descanso, Fallbrook, Jamul, Potrero and Warner Springs. There were also reported unplanned power outages in the county.

According to the utility company, more than 40 localities with nearly 49,000 residents could be affected by blackouts.

The restoration is expected from Friday 17:00 to Saturday 17:00.

In response to an alert issued earlier this week, SDG&E cut power to high-risk areas on Thanksgiving Day, with thousands of blackouts being turned off, according to Fox 5 San Diego, starting at 5300 at 8:00 a.m. …

“On the evening of the same day, that number remained at around 6,000, with the bulk of the interruptions being power outages for public safety purposes,” the news channel reported.

The red flag warning is valid until Friday 6:00 pm.

Community Resource Centers for Disaster Affected People opened on Friday, November 26:

  • Descanso Community Resource Center, 9545 River Drive, Descanso, 91916. Open from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm.
  • Potrero Community Resource Center, 24550 Highway 94 Potrero, 91963. Open 8:00 am to 10:00 pm.

The National Weather Service (NWS) forecast calls for east winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour, with gusts up to 55 miles per hour, and occasional gusts up to 65 miles per hour in “wind-friendly” locations.

In addition, the humidity level will drop to 5-10 percent.

“Any fires that do occur are likely to spread quickly,” the NWS said in a statement. “Burning outdoors is not recommended.”

Winds are expected to ease by the weekend and humidity is expected to gradually recover.
