According to the local California news outlets, there have been many problems related to the strong winds across the state. The bay area saw the strongest outcomes related to the late night winds, which knocked down trees, slowed down drivers and kept thousands of PG&E customers without any power.
The spokesperson for PG&E announced that the company anticipated the extremely windy weather and that the power outage was an expected outcome. Due to the imminent issue at hand, PG&E allegedly doubled the number of workers on duty so the response to the power suspension issue could be resolved in a timely manner.
Reports from the California Highway Patrol showed that a high-wind alert was issued to the entire state, specially the Bay Area bridges. All drivers and motorcycle riders should be extremely careful while on the road.
As a Fresno car accident attorney I advise drivers to expect delays whenever driving in an extreme weather condition. Allow some extra inches between vehicles and be aware of unexpected hurdles.
Many personal injury lawyers understand that this is a particular delicate time, the Santa Ana winds may hit certain areas in California forcefully. Be attentive and drive safely.
