According to information received by KMUD News from Pacific Gas and Electric, dated Dec. 3, 2012:

PG&E crews worked through the night last night and made good progress restoring power to most of the PG&E service area. Today’s focus will be on moving crews to the harder hit areas where restoration efforts have been impacted by access issues. The goal is to have the vast majority of our customers restored today, but there will likely be some customers without power until tomorrow morning.

Listed below are the number of customers currently out of service as of 10:20 a.m., Dec. 3, 2012
