However, from tonight to Saturday afternoon, a gust of southerly winds can occur along the hills of Tehachapi, leaving the PG & E Emergency Operations Center activated for potential PSPS events.

PSPS warnings will continue to be valid in Kern County tomorrow and Saturday.

On Monday, PG & E cut off power to approximately 24,000 customers in some of the 23 counties.Power for that PSPS event was restored on Tuesday night

Authorities say the cutoff is an effort to reduce the risk of a wildfire from a utility’s power line in dry, windy conditions.
