A little after 4 p.m today, multiple PG&E customers lost power. Over 3500 are without electricity in the Garberville area and over 1600 in the Laytonville area. Miranda, Myers Flat and Weott are all affected as well.
Below is an outage map from PG&E. Orange bubbles show where thousands of customers are without power, yellow shows where hundreds are out, and green shows smaller amounts.
We have a call into PG&E and will update with more information soon.
UPDATE 8 p.m.: According to a PG&E spokesperson, although 6000 were originally without power now power has been restored to most people. 1500 customers are still without power in the Laytonville and Low Gap area. The spokesperson said that an electrical transmission line is down in a steep canyon near Forest Glen. Repair work may take awhile there however, the spokesperson said that “Most if not all will have power back in the next hour to hour and a half.”
