The Office of Emergency Management has notified residents that there is a potential power shut down in select areas of southern Santa Barbara County on Monday evening.
In an effort to maintain public safety, Southern California Edison has notified the public that they are considering turning off power to some areas of southern Santa Barbara County.
The company may turn off power to areas between the cities of Goleta and Santa Barbara, starting from Paradise Road down Turnpike Road to More Mesa between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Monday evening.
Kelly Hubbard with the Office of Emergency Management said the potential power shutoff is due to fire weather conditions.
“Edison said it has potential for three to four circuits. Those are listed on their website. This is strictly SCE. PG & E has not notified us of any events. So it's based on weather conditions here in Santa Barbara.
Hubbard encourages residents to register your contact information at readysbc.org to receive notifications.
