Thursday update on PG&E power situation
The main Stanford campus, Stanford Redwood City and SLAC are open and operating, and there continues to be no indication that they will be affected by PG&E’s power shutoffs in the Bay Area.
Additional shutoffs were implemented in the region overnight. PG&E is reporting this morning that customers in Santa Clara, San Mateo and several other counties who have not yet lost power should not lose it during this power shutoff event. PG&E has outage maps available at https://m.pge.com/#outages and http://critweb-outage.pgealerts.com.
We know that some employees have been affected by power shutoffs at their homes. Managers are encouraged to provide flexibility. Please be in touch with your manager if you are affected and need to discuss alternate work arrangements.
Stanford is continuing to monitor the situation closely. If there are any major changes in the situation for Stanford, members of the university community will be informed via the AlertSU system. Ongoing updates will be provided on this website. SLAC continues to provide SLAC-specific information to its community at https://emergency.slac.stanford.edu.
