Where to get power outage information

With the impending planned power outages (due to temperatures and winds) and their uncertainty, here are some sources for power outage information:

Note that many cities (including LA) have their own municipal power supplies and may have their own planned outage plans during high fire risk weather.

Northern CA, including SF Bay Area, is mostly served by PG&E:
Outage maps are located at the PG&E site

The map defaults to the bay area, but you can scroll around to the rest of the PG&E area, and if you zoom in, the magnifying glass icons switch to colored areas that look like the coverage areas of circuits that are shut off.

BART is likely to not be affected by power outages, as it draws power from many sources around the area and has its own switching capability.

Southern California is served by SoCal Edison:
Outage maps are located at the SCE site

City of Los Angeles:
The City of Los Angeles is supplied its own municipal department of water and power with outage maps at the LADWP site

LAX and SFO are probably unlikely to be affected, but smaller airports may be affected.
Santa Rosa airport (STS) has posted that they're subject to outages and have backup power to run air operations as scheduled, but security may be impacted and TSA may be running hand searches instead of x-ray machines.

San Diego County (and the far SW edge of Orange County) is covered by San Diego Gas and Electric, which has its own outage links:
