A once-in-a-decade storm hit San Francisco this morning, and has knocked out power to as many asA 150,000 people in the city.
A huge part of downtown San Francisco, including most of the financial district and the dozens of luxury shops around Union Square, was blacked out this morning. The right part of that red area includes most of downtown, including the financial district. But the simple fact of the matter is that the Bay Area is not equipped for this kind of rain. Officials are preparing for the possibility of debris slides and tidal waves as a result of the storm.A As many as eight inches of rain could fall over 24 hours, and up to two feet of snow is expected to blanket Sierra Nevada ski resorts. Pacific Gas & Electric reported four massive power outages in San Joaquin County and the foothills Tuesday, affecting tens of thousands of customers.
PG&E says it is investigating the cause or causes for the outages, and does not have an estimated time for restoration.
PG&E spokesperson Nicole Liebelt told FOX40 Tuesday afternoon that at the height of the outages, 98,000 customers were without power. Screen capture of a PG&E map showing the extent of Tuesday afternoon power outage in the East Bay.
BART advises that riders can still use the Ashby and North Berkeley stations, and buses to downtown are available. KQED News associate Berkeleyside is also reporting on the outage and has pictures from around the city.
About 3,400 PG&E customers are without power in Rocklin on Thursday afternoon, officials said. Donald Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson defended the use of the term "Gestapo tactics" to describe Ted Cruz's campaign strategy.

Statement of PolicyThese are the policies I will use in dealing with comments on this blog. Power was fully restored in Linda Mar late this morning after a transformer at a PG&E substation failed and caught fire. There was no definitive word yet on what triggered the problem but power outages were felt as far away as Montara. As Reuters reports, and as thousands felt early this morning, an earthquake of 6.0 magnitude, the largest in the region for 25 years, shook the San Francisco Bay Area early on Sunday, waking residents and causing some power outages and minor damage, according to initial reports. Randy Baldwin, a USGS geophysicist, said the tremor was potentially damaging because it was close to populated areas. Local CBS news said that several fires had broken out in Napa, which is famous as a wine-growing center. Police dispatchers in nearby San Francisco and Oakland said there were no reports of major damage.
Reuters reporters in Oakland felt the quake as a long, low swell that shook gently for several seconds.
The question now is whether the aftershocks, which can continue for the next several weeks and which experts will watch their distribution to determine if this quake happened on a fault line, will morph into something even stronger.

The drainage systems aren't built for four inches of rain in a 24-hour period, and the gusts of wind, which were over 50 miles an hour this morning in some parts of the city, knocked over a lot of tree branches. To ensure a better experience on our site, we recommend using a recent version of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. At the peak of the disruption, BART’s Downtown Berkeley Station was closed and traffic signals were out at many intersections.
Adding up the numbers PG&E is reporting, close to 40,000 customers may be without power. As a safety precaution, they closed off Valencia Way between Granada Drive and La Mirada Drive.


With the memory of the San Bruno fire still lingering, the scene was a bit tense for a while. PG&E and the fire department played it safe and shut down the substation, causing the outage for about 50 customers, until they could shift power and repair the damaged transformer, said Matt Lucett with North County Fire.
29, PG&E reported that the power outage actually impacted about 4,422 customers in Pacifica and surrounding areas. NBC Bay Area reports that The Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa has admitted 70 patients but their injuries are not expected to be serious. Geological Survey (USGS) said the epicenter of the quake was eight km (five miles) northwest of the town of American Canyon, on the northern edge of the Bay, hitting some 9 kilometers away from the city of Napa at a depth of 10.8 kilometers. He added the USGS was starting to receive reports of some damage in the city of Napa, mostly masonry and some structural damage, as well as power outages.
A safety dispatcher for several cities, including American Canyon and Napa, said there were reports of people losing power. The underground subway station at Montgomery Street, in the heart of the Financial District, was also shut down. Red means that a single outage is affecting more than 5,000 people; yellow means a smaller outage is affecting less than 500 people. Drivers should treat all intersections with nonfunctional traffic lights as four-way stops. Because of the high voltage coursing through the substation, fire crews didn’t go into the substation and waited for PG&E representatives to arrive to mitigate the incident. To measure our reliability, we constantly track and monitor outages across our service areas.
