SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Thousands of Pacific Gas and Electric Co. customers are still without power two weeks after a severe winter storm brought several feet of snowfall to the Sierra Nevada and its foothills.

On Sunday afternoon, PG&E spokeswoman Karly Hernandez said that 3,198 customers were still without power. In Nevada County, 1,978 were still affected by the blackouts, plus 562 in El Dorado County, 452 in Placer County and 200 in Sierra County.

“PG&E crews continue to make progress restoring customers that are without power,” Hernandez said in an email to The Sacramento Bee.


PG&E has opened several community resource centers in the region for those affected by the power outages, allowing residents to charge electronic devices or grab essential supplies.
