When gusty winds and dry conditions occur, combined with a heightened fire risk, PG&E may need to turn off power for public safety. Use these maps to find the specific addresses and general areas that may be impacted by a possible power shutoff, once PG&E announces a potential PSPS.
The address lookup map is meant to be used as a planning tool before a Potential Public Safety Power Shutoff. Once a PSPS event is underway, find current information at these locations:

When a Public Safety Power Shutoff event is announced, we will post PDF maps here of the general area(s) that will be impacted by the shutoff.
NOTE: The information displayed on and available through this webpage is intended only to provide a general estimate regarding potential locations that may be impacted by a PSPS event should one become necessary. Conditions affecting a possible PSPS event can change quickly and the actual impact of a future PSPS event is uncertain. We encourage you to check back every few hours as the maps may change.
The potential outage area map offers general guidelines only. For the most accurate information, please use the address lookup map.
It may take up to 10 seconds for an address to appear, especially if you are using a mobile phone that isn’t on WiFi. Start with the street address only. If your address doesn’t appear after 10 seconds, refer to the potential outage area map.
We will attempt to send you a text or call and email 48 hours before we turn off power, 24 hours before and just prior to shutting off power. If you didn’t receive any communications from us, be sure we have your correct contact information. Sign in to check your contact information.
If you have a landlord or property manager, they will receive notification on your behalf. We encourage you to contact them to confirm they know how to reach you. Or, sign up to receive PSPS ZIP Code Alerts for Non-Account Holders directly from PG&E.
You can also follow PG&E on social media or get PSPS updates from local news outlets or on our PSPS event page.
The potential shutoff area(s) and address lookup maps are used for planning purposes before power is turned off. They are updated as new information becomes available. We encourage you to check back every few hours as the maps may change. The date and time stamp on the maps show the last time the files were updated.
