[ARCHIVED] Power Outage and High Winds Affect Danville


High winds and downed power lines are causing perilous conditions and a widespread power outage in Danville.

Downed power lines have been reported on:

The areas are partially or fully closed, and PG&E is either on route or on site to assess. Please avoid driving near these locations. Town programs for the evening of March 14 are cancelled. The Planning Commission at the Town Meeting Hall is cancelled, as are Town classes and activities at Danville Community Center, Senior Center, Oak Hill Park, and Hap Magee Ranch Park. The Teen Centers are open until 5:30 p.m. Most Danville businesses are also closed due to the power outage.
