Caltrans indicates there are no impediments to travel or chain controls this morning throughout Mendocino County while in over 1000 Round Valley residents are without power.

According to the Pacific Gas and Electric outage map, approximately 1,125 Round Valley residents lost power last night at approximately 9:08 p.m. when temperatures dipped as low as 30 degrees Farhenheit.

The outage mage indicates the outage was caused “by an equipment issue” and PG&E is sending a repair crew to the outage location. The estimated time of power restoration is today at 1:00 p.m.
