Update: Shutoff begins in Placer, Nevada and Yuba counties just after midnight Wednesday

The restoration of power could take up to five days for some customers, according to PG&E. Here are the counties across the Sacramento area bracing for shutoffs, and the locations of resource centers with charging stations expected to open Wednesday morning.
