Tiburon Peninsula hit with PG&E blackouts

Residents of Tiburon, Belvedere and Strawberry joined the nearly 3 million people across 37 California counties whose power was deliberately shut down by Pacific Gas and Electric Co. late Oct. 26. But more than two days later, just as power was starting to come back online, PG&E announced the area could be included in a second round of shutoffs slated for some time Tuesday, Oct. 29, after The Ark’s press deadline. By nightfall Oct. 28, power had been restored to some pockets of the peninsula, allowing several businesses to reopen Oct. 29 — though most residents and businesses, including Tiburon Town Hall and Belvedere City Hall, remained without power.
