WMF went to bed earlier and missed the massive power outage. Thanks to everyone who reported it. Sounds like this might happen more in the future, so prepare accordingly. “Power was restored early Friday after a massive overnight outage turned out the lights to approximately 54,000 residents across Marin County, according to Pacific Gas & Electric Co.

The outage hit around 10 p.m. with reports of outages in Sausalito, Mill Valley, Belvedere, Tiburon, Corte Madera, San Rafael, Novato and across to West Marin.

“I think we were definitely overwhelmed but we had the staffing to deal with it,” Marin County Sheriff Brenton Schneider said. “Overall, I think it’s a good lesson as this is going to happen more often with the planned shutoffs.”
