In an effort to mitigate the damage from wildfires in California, Pacific Gas & Electric has cut off power to sections of the state.

Officials fear that high-speed gusts of wind along with dry weather could topple trees, which could blow into power lines, which would ignite a fire.

So far, impacted areas include portions of Oakland, San Francisco, the Santa Cruz Mountains and more.

How are the blackouts affecting California residents? And how do we adjust to life in a world altered by climate change?
