In the dark: Outraged Californians scramble to get supplies as the PG&E power cut off is expected to affect about 2 million people – closing schools, shuttering businesses and overwhelming roadways

The PG&E power shutoff began Wednesday morning and is the largest effort to combat wildfires caused by windblown power lines in the state's history

Californians are outraged as the PG&E's power shutoff, announced on Tuesday, forces them to scramble for supplies

Schools have been cancelled, businesses shut down, roadways overwhelmed with disabled traffic lights and dwindling supplies in stores

One of the shutoff's biggest critics are those living in senior centers and people who rely on electric medical supplies

PG&E have assured residents this is a preventative measure to reduce the risk of preventable wildfires

Power cuts can be expected to be seen in 34 counties, affect nearly 800,000 customers and leave around 2 million people in the dark
