Community resources available as Santa Cruz County prepares for possible power shutoffs



High winds and dry conditions mean more than 400,000 Pacific Gas & Electric customers in California could lose power as a public safety precaution.

Santa Cruz County Spokesperson Jason Hoppin says around 9,000 of those customers could be in the Santa Cruz County areas.

PG & E and county officials are urging community members to prepare as soon as possible to be without power beginning late Sunday evening.

Four community resource centers will open up in the area for locals to have access to water and power sources to charge their personal or medical devices.

The locations will be at Costco in Santa Cruz, St Michael's Church in Boulder Creek, Highlands Park in Ben Lomond and the Enterprise Technology Center in Scotts Valley.
