Gusts could get as high as 55 MPH Saturday night and Sunday in the Sacramento Valley. Those gusts may lead to electrical outages.

Chris Capra with SMUD says crews will move as fast as they can to restore power.   

"We are prepared to bring on as many crews as possible to deal with any restoration efforts. We have our regular complement of crews and we can bring in as many as 200 field personnel." 

Capra suggests having an emergency kit packed with a flashlight, bottled water, canned food, a manual can opener, battery operated radio and extra batteries.

He says you should also call their customer service center to report any outages.
