California may experience a lot of power outages from PG&E this summer as they will be cutting power when the winds pick up on an on-going basis.
PG&E said a transmission line that snapped in windy weather probably started last year's Camp Fire, the deadliest in state history. The blackouts this summer could last for hours, or even days.
The wildfire season usually starts around June and runs through December, exacerbated by strong winds that race through the state and dry conditions that turn brush and plants into tinder.
The biggest concern lies with the elderly and hospitals.
PG&E is working on a plan to give plenty of warning prior to the outages.
