PG&E is on the scene for multiple power outages in Northern Sonoma County and Southern Mendocino County this evening. 

The most affected areas are the Mendocino County town of Hopland and over 2,000 Cloverdale customers currently in the dark.

Interestingly, the series of power outages make almost a perfect line from the town of Sonoma to Rohnert Park to Santa Rosa, stretching up to Cloverdale, and the outages seemingly end in Hopland. 

Affected Hopland customers are all on the west side of Highway 101, as per the outage map. 

The cause of these outages is described as being investigated and the power is estimated to be restored by 12:15 a.m.

UPDATE 10:29 p.m.: The following is a Facebook post from the City of Cloverdale:

The City was notified that a transformer at the PG&E substation failed. There is currently an electrical outage across the majority of the City.

PG&E has been dispatched to assess. No current updates on the restoration of power.

UPDATE 10:50 p.m.: Power has been restored to some or all of Hopland, confirmed by MendoFever who is headquartered in the affected area.



  1. How can the homeless power up their new electric car to get their new job under Biden’s wonderful economic growth plan by inflating dollars into worthless pieces of paper?

    Maintenance, we don’t need no stinking maintenance.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
