More than 250 customers remained without power Wednesday night.

Bay City News report

An estimated 276 customers were still without electricity in four areas of Sonoma County late Wednesday afternoon, a PG&E spokeswoman said.

Sebastopol area residents experienced three separate outages at 5:15 a.m., 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., PG&E spokeswoman Brittany McKannay said.

A total of 1,035 customers lost power in the Sexton and Tilton roads areas and on Bodega Highway, and 130 customers were still without power at 5 p.m., McKannay said.

The outages were weather related. PG&E crews were working late Wednesday afternoon in the Spring Hill School Road area near state Highway 12.

Power for 270 customers went out in the Fourth Street area of downtown Santa Rosa around noon because of an underground equipment failure, McKannay said.

Power was restored at 3 p.m. to 150 customers and 120 customers were still out on Wednesday night, McKannay said.

Power to 2,400 customers in the Mill Creek Road area of Healdsburg was out between 2 p.m. and 2:50 p.m., McKannay said.

In Petaluma, power went out at 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., affecting 200 customers, McKannay said. Twenty-six customers were still without power at 5 p.m.

PG&E attempts to reroute power to some of the affected areas as soon as possible, but it takes longer to restore power when power lines and poles fall, McKannay said.
