Nearly 44,000 people remain without power in the Bay Area after storm registered Tuesday

By Bay City News.

About 44,000 homes remain without power in the Bay Area as of Thursday morning following Tuesday's storm, according to PG&E. About half of those homes are in the South Bay.

According to reports just before 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, just over 14,000 customers are without power on the Peninsula and about 7,200 are without power in the East Bay. 

Meanwhile, in San Francisco and the North Bay, fewer than 200 have no power, PG&E officials said.

Tuesday's storm caused the most storm outages since 1995, company officials said. Between Tuesday and Wednesday morning, PG&E crews restored power to about 435,000 customers in Northern and Central California.

Notably, the Bay Area may not dry out before the next rain storm hits this Friday, according to a forecast "advisory" from the National Weather Service.

Forecasters have been looking at light showers possibly starting Friday and lasting through Sunday, perhaps a bit heavier on Monday and potentially lasting through Thursday.

However, nothing is certain. The forecast is tentative and acknowledges a lack of confidence in the timing and intensity of the storm.

As conditions may change in the coming days, the alert urges the public to monitor forecasts as the storm approaches.
