PG&E has issued an "all-clear" on its latest round of public safety power shutoffs. The utility will now begin the process of inspecting equipment and making repairs as needed in order to restore power to customers.

However, more shutoffs could be coming soon. PG&E is currently monitoring another weather system that could cause shutoffs starting Tuesday. This latest round could affect 35 counties in the Bay area.

PG&E recommends customers visit their website to determine if they could be affected by the next round of cutoffs.

Meanwhile, according to the SoCal Edison website over 20,000 Kern County customers are under threat of losing power due to power safety shutoffs. Those customers include residents in Tehachapi, and unincorporated areas of Kern County like Bear Valley Springs, Kernville, and Tejon Ranch among a dozen other locations.

There is no estimated time of when these customers could lose power if SCE moves forward with the shutoffs.
