    Bottled water, stripped for store shelves
    Batteries, Flashlights. Honda is making a killing on portable generators. Imagine a whole community powering up their portable generators. We'll hundreds of CarbonMonoxide related deaths!
    Traffic signals out, rotting food, stalled construction..... etc.....

    Not so far. I can't help but feel this is not a safety measure by PG&E, but a financial greed one. They've been sued because of the nearby Camp Fire, where it burned down nearly the whole town of Paradise, CA. Now they need to somehow recover the billion or so dollars that fire caused in damages. Rate increases are controlled by the state, I think, so their options are limited.

    I have friends that lost everything in Paradise, Ca. Fortunately, they live to fight another day!
    Greed and Thoughtless Strategies by the powers that be.
