Over 40K people in Nevada County could be impacted by PG&E safety shutoffs

The news hit people in Nevada City this week. "It's a lot to handle. Just COVID alone has probably cut our business in half," said Laura Parker, who owns Solstice, a costume store that relies heavily on holiday foot traffic.
