California power outagesMore than 1 million Californians were in the dark Wednesday in the first phase of a multi-day Public Safety Power Shutoff aimed at curbing wildfire risks amid high winds and hot, dry conditions.

Pacific Gas and Electric said power was shut off to 513,000 Northern California homes and businesses early Wednesday. Another 234,000 Pacific Gas and Electric customers will lose power at noon local time, and 42,000 customers in the southernmost areas of the company's reach could also go dark, the state's largest power company said.

The precautionary shutdown is expected to last through most of Thursday, and some areas could be without power longer as the utility ramps back up after the winds abate.
