PG&E has shut off power to portions of three northern California counties. The utility initiated a Public Safety Power Shutoff affecting about 27,500 customers in portions of Butte, Nevada, and Yuba counties in the Sierra foothills. According to PG&E spokesman Paul Moreno that number went up from 21 thousand after two transmission lines were added due to increased vegetation concerns. 
Moreno says customers in the affected areas may have their power restored for a brief time on Tuesday before a second power shutoff Tuesday night.    
Butte County affected areas include: Bangor, Berry Creek, Brush Creek, Feather Falls, Forbestown, Hurleton, Oroville, Palermo, Rackerby, and Yankee Hill. 
PG&E says there are over 15 thousand customers in Butte County that are affected by the shutoff.
