A large majority of Humboldt County residents remain without
power after PG&E implemented a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) around
10:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26. At this time, PG&E is reporting that air
and ground crews are inspecting power lines with the goal of full power
restoration before the next planned PSPS on Tuesday, Oct. 29. Humboldt County
Office of Emergency Services (OES) has received reports that power is coming
back on in some parts of the county, but PG&E acknowledges that some
customers may remain without power through the next shutoff. Please note, all
information provided by the utility is subject to change at any time.
PG&E has said that the Oct. 29 weather event is expected
to begin around 6 a.m. with power being shut off around 4:30 a.m. Residents should
be prepared for power to go off any time overnight tonight. If your power is
restored, use that time to restock emergency supplies, recharge medical and
other devices, make arrangements for medical needs and refuel vehicles and
Individuals with a disability who are dependent on
electricity to power life-sustaining durable medical equipment or are PG&E
Medical Baseline Program customers and who need help should call or text
Tri-County Independent Living at 1-833-866-8444 for assistance. If you are
