Power outages continued to plague dozens of pockets of Sonoma County, primarily in the west county.
As of early Monday 4,055 customers remained out of power, down from a peak of 13,000 customers on Sunday, said Deanna Contreras, PG&E spokeswoman.
“It’s all the same cause, trees down, power lines down,” Contreras said.
The scattered outages largely include groups of 200 and 300 customers. “There isn’t one huge one that stands out,” she said.
One outage of 227 customers in Forestville and Guerneville was expected to be restored by about 1:30 p.m. but repair times for other outages remained unknown.
Thousands of residents have been out of power since early Sunday.
A tree fell across River Road in Forestville early Monday, pulling power lines down and blocking the major west county route, according to the Highway Patrol.
The fallen tree was reported at Mirabel Avenue at 5:20 a.m. and the CHP warned drivers to use Highway 116 as an alternate route as the road would be closed there for an unknown amount of time.
PG&E was responding, needing to deactivate the wires, according to initial reports.
Many roads Monday morning remained closed due to flooding and CHP warned drivers to heed closure signs and not end up like many others during the weekend whose vehicles stalled in flood waters and had to be abandoned.
The forecast Monday morning showed a lull between storms, with showers possible during the day and rain returning Monday night.
