Over 800,000 people in the San Francisco Bay Area will potentially be affected with power outages starting Wednesday, 10/9, right after midnight. Hopefully you've seen reports and are prepared if your city is on the list, but if you're still wondering whether you'll be a part of the power outages or not, just text PG&E!
If you text 976-33 with the word "enroll," PG&E will immediately send you a prompt back asking for your zip code. If you can't text, you can also get zip-code alerts by calling 1-877-9000-PGE to get enrolled.
The PG&E website has been failing because of all the interest in this, so make sure to sign up for their text alerts and check with their Twitter for updates.
