Truckee, CA…Liberty Energy says power restoration may be midnight. There are currently 5,401 Liberty customers in Eldorado & Placer Counties without power at this time… “Update Jan. 8 @ 9:15 pm 20 customers along Turnback Trail in SLT w/out power due to tree on line & snapped pole. Crew in route; no est. restoration time. Estimated restoration time for customers from Meeks Bay to Tahoe City has been extended to midnight at the earliest as the traffic control team was delayed along I-80 and Liberty‚Äôs crews could not begin work along Hwy 89 until they arrived. Any customers in the Tahoe City region that are currently out of power as of 6:45pm today will remain out until midnight at the earliest. West shore customers from Emerald Bay to Tahoe City will also be out until midnight at the earliest. Customers south of Homewood should plan on being out of power beyond midnight due to falling trees and mudslides; we do not have an estimated restoration time for this area. There are sporadic outages throughout the service territory due to falling trees/branches. Customers with damage to service wire feeding their home should plan on being out for 24-48 hours.
