Stormy weather knocks out power to hundreds in the county

Windy, rainy conditions doused power to homes and businesses around Sonoma County on Wednesday, including about 700 customers in Sebastopol who were out at one point, a PG&E spokeswoman said.

Outages also affected about 95 customers in Petaluma, 40 customers in Sonoma and 22 customers in Valley Ford, spokeswoman Brittany McKannay said.

"We have a number of crews who have been on standby and on call to address these, because we had anticipated that we would be having weather-related outages today, so we have all of our crews on deck," McKannay said.

Most of the problems occurred after 8 a.m., though some Sebastopol residents lost power as early as about 5 a.m.

Power had been restored to all but 130 Sebastopol customers by 9:15 a.m., McKannay said.
