California May Go Dark This Summer, and Most Aren’t Ready

When the wind blows this summer, the financially troubled power company PG&E plans to cut power to key lines in an effort meant to prevent forest fires. The plan was devised after the company identified that a power line snapped by high wind likely started last year’s Camp Fire which was the deadliest fire in California state history.

The plan could require some citizens of California to go without power for a number of days, a contingency that most are unlikely to be ready for.
