LMUD explains that they are still waiting for PG&E to update them on the status of the Caribou transmission line.

If the line is given “the all clear” (which they expect to take 3 to 4 hours), power will be restored to the system.

“If the line is found to be damaged and cannot be energized,” explains Spokesperson Theresa Phillips, “we will attempt the islanding process with HLP.

As a proactive measure, crews are preparing for islanding should it become necessary. We will post the latest information on this situation as it becomes available.
