Power restored in Memorial Hospital area; other outages in west county

Stormy weather and downed trees cut power to about 350 Sonoma County customers early Saturday morning, PG&E said.

Twenty-three separate power outages were reported around the county, though only a few included more than a handful of customers.

They included about 125 customers in the Jenner area, about 115 in the Highway 116/Pocket Canyon Road near Forestville and another dozen or so north of Guerneville, PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morrison said.

Those off Highway 116 should have power restored around 10:30 a.m. Saturday, while most of the others should have the lights back on around noon or 1, Morrison said.

"There are going to be five customers here, three customers there" who have to operate without electricity for longer — plus anyone else who may lose power as the rainy conditions persist, she said.

Power was restored late Friday and early Saturday to about 1,400 hard-hit customers in the area of Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, where several power outages have occurred in the past few weeks.

Memorial Hospital went off emergency generator power around 5 a.m., Morrison said.
