SMUD dealing with a massive power outage

If you woke up this morning without power, you are not alone.

Saturday night’s heavy wind and rains caused a massive power outage in the SMUD service area with over 320,000 SMUD customers without power due to 705 outages as of 5:30 am on Sunday. Rio Linda is the hardest hit with over 50,000 without power. SMUD lists almost 19,000 in the East Elk Grove area, but outages in Florin and South Sacramento are also affecting Elk Grove residents.

Early this morning the National Weather Service in Sacramento issued a wind warning for the central valley. Winds were gusting over 50 mph.
