All School Districts Impacted by SDG&E Power Shutdown Now Open

San Diego Gas and Electric is returning power service to customers in several fire-prone areas

The San Diego County Office of Education said Thursday that Spencer Valley School District would reopen campuses Friday following a multi-day closure as San Diego Gas & Electric shut off power service to customers living in fire-prone areas.

Spencer Valley was the only district closed Thursday due to the shutdown.

SDG&E decided earlier in the week to shut off power to some communities as a precaution due to dangerous fire weather brought on by low humidity and high winds.

Though a red flag warning expired Wednesday evening and a high wind warning expired Tuesday evening, NBC 7 meteorologist Dagmar Midcap said conditions will remain at borderline critical fire weather status through Friday afternoon.

Humidity was expected to stay between 5 and 15 percent in the mountains and deserts Thursday and would return to seasonal levels on Friday, Midcap said.
