There are now widespread power outages across the coast. PG&E reports that thousands of customers from Pescadero to Montara were without power at 4:45 p.m. with no immediate word on restoration.

The weather deteriorated throughout the day on Wednesday and forecasters were saying the worst of the current storm was expected between 5 and 8 p.m.tonight on the coast. A High Wind Warning was in effect throughout the night and heavy surf was building offshore.

Cabrillo Unified schools will be closed on Thursday. In the La Honda-Pescadero school district, La Honda Elementary School and the preschools will be closed on Thursday. Pescadero Middle and High School is scheduled to be open as usual, according to the county Department of Education.

A small slide adjacent to the westbound lane of Highway 92 near the lake caretaker's gate caused one way traffic control for a time Wednesday AM. Difficult to repair. Worth a call to CalTrans.

This is not the day to require readers to login to read articles about storm related issues.


I respectfully, and strongly, disagree. Basic emergency and safety information is available from San Mateo County:

Journalism is struggling nationwide. We are so fortunate here on the coast to have such dedicated people at the Review. Their work is worth so much to so many of us, the least that can be done is to create and login to a free account. If the review suspended this rule for urgent, breaking, or high interest stories, their ability to do business would be further compromised. I love and read everything the review puts out, but I have little doubt its stories like this one that bring the most traffic to the site.

Creating an account is super easy. If you cannot afford an online subscription, a free one still allows you to see articles. For those with a few $ in their pocket that are looking for a good home, I can't think of too many community enterprises more important than our local newspaper.

I am sorry for any frustration, struggle or loss you may have experienced resulting from this storm.


Thanks for calling this to our attention. Breaking weather news alerts are no longer behind the paywall.
