Mountain View High was let out early due to a power outage there--so we did feel some impact.

I wonder how the settlers and Native Americans held up:)

I have something to add to Wendy's comment. Many power outages around MVHS. Trees toppled onto power line and caused a short circuit.

The whole top of the tree on Bryant Ave broke (or exploded) off. Power outage happened at aprox 11:50 AM PST.

(I am a student and the clocks stopped when the power went out!)

Been without power since 11:30 am. PGE's outage line says I was the only one who reported the outage.. They think it is just me but my whole neighborhood is pitch black. Please call PGE to report it at: 1 (800) 743-5002. Help! My food is melting...

Thank you PG&E for all that work you did outside, in the rain, under those miserable conditions.
