[ARCHIVED] PG&E power shutoff Sunday evening UPDATE

October 27, 2019

PG&E has said Humboldt County has been given the weather “All clear” so inspection of the lines can begin.  However, PG&E was unable to provide information regarding the status of those inspections or time estimations for power restoration to any portion of Humboldt County.  They reiterated restoration could take up to 48 daylight hours from the weather “All clear” time.  

Humboldt County residents are encouraged to prepare for another night without power.  Temperatures are forecast to dip into the 30’s inland and some areas along the coast could see freezing temperatures.  Please use care when using generator powered heating devices or fire sources for indoor heat.  

If possible, avoid driving while the power is out.  If you must drive, treat all intersections with nonoperational traffic signals as four way stops.  Drive slowly and cautiously during the outage. 

The next weather event is still scheduled for Tuesday morning.  PG&E estimated a de-energization time of 4:30 am on Tuesday 10-29-2019, and estimated the time for the weather “All clear” at 12 pm noon on Wednesday 10-30-2019.  As always, these times are estimates provided by PG&E and are subject to change. 

Additional information will be released as it becomes 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.
