[ARCHIVED] PG&E power outage UPDATE and NEW PSPS info

PG&E notified Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services (OES) that portions of Humboldt County have been given the “All clear” for the weather event and will begin the restoration process as soon as conditions allow.  No further details regarding locations or time estimates were provided. 

PG&E also notified OES that another weather event is scheduled for Tuesday 10-29-19 at 6 am which will also result in a possible Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS).  PG&E is still attempting to restore power before that weather event arrives.  Based on PG&E’s latest information, we expect a small window of time between restoration from the current outage before powering down again on Tuesday.

During the window of power restoration, Humboldt County residents are encouraged to: 

a.       Restock emergency supplies including medication, food, water, fuel, etc.

b.       Charge all devices 

c.       Make arrangements for medical needs 

d.       Sign up for Humboldt ALERT at

e.       Follow @HumboldtCountyOES on Facebook and Twitter for the latest information

As always, this information from PG&E is subject to change.  Updates will be provided as soon as they become available.

To learn more about PSPS, go to or by calling 1-877-9000-PGE. Sign up to receive location-specific emergency information through Humboldt ALERTs at Follow Sheriff’s OES on Facebook for the most recent updates.
