Pacific Gas & Electric reported Wednesday morning that all of the approximately 11,000 customers who lost their power Sunday during a safety shutoff have been restored.

Restoration began late Monday and accelerated on Tuesday as workers checked lines for damage following the late weekend Diablo winds, PG&E said.  

There are still a few customers awaiting electricity, some on the Lake County Highway outside Calistoga, because PG&E is making wind repairs to damaged equipment, said PG&E spokesperson Deanna Contreras.

"PG&E found extensive damage throughout the North Bay and we appreciate everyone's patience as we work to restore power safely and as quickly as possible," Contreras said.

The shutoff was intended to prevent winds from causing damage to electrical lines and igniting the tender-dry countryside. There were no new fires in Napa County during the shutoff.

Sustained winds of 54 mph were recorded in Napa County Sunday night, with a peak gust of 82 mph on Mount Hood which straddles the Sonoma/Napa line, PG&E said.

There were 76 instances of weather-related damage and hazards found along PG&E's lines, the utility said.
