A map shows the areas potentially impacted by public safety power shutoffs.

Due to a Red Flag Warning issued by the National Weather Service and potentially strong and multi-day Santa Ana winds forecasted for Southern California, SDG&E has notified about 88,700 customers that they could be at risk of prolonged Public Safety Power Shutoffs.

The shutoffs could happen as early as Wednesday night Dec. 2 or Thursday morning Dec. 3 and potentially last through Sunday/Monday, Dec. 6-7.

The shutoffs target fire- and wind-prone backcountry communities in the High Fire Threat District (HFTD) and some inland and coastal communities outside of the HFTD. Portions of Rancho Santa Fe are included. Visit to see a map and a list of communities that could be affected and search by address.
