Regional utility provider SDG&E is warning there could be possible power outages in portions of Orange County due to high-risk wildfire conditions.
San Clemente and eastern San Juan Capistrano are among the communities that could be impacted.
“The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning in effect for San Diego County Valleys and Mountains and Inland Orange County, from Wednesday, December 2, at 6:00 p.m. through (the) weekend,” the SDG&E alert said. “The National Weather Service also issued a High Wind Watch for these same areas, for potentially damaging winds.”
The weather conditions could affect power lines, SDG&E said. Power turned off will remain off until it’s safe to turn it back on.
Potentially affected customers will be notified 48 hours in advance, if possible, of the power going out.
