Multiple Reports of Low Flying Helicopter
Over the last two days, we’ve received multiple reports of a low flying helicopter east of Garberville. It is described as either blue and white or green and white.
According to Jasmine Finley, a Southern Humboldt resident, she witnessed the chopper around noon today in the Palo Verde area. “I was on the ridge near the fire hall and a blue and white helicopter was flying so low I thought they might be landing,” she said. “I am part of the fundraising staff for the fire department and was worried because no one was at the fire hall.” The helicopter didn’t land but Finley said that the helicopter flew about 150 feet above the ground.
Other observers have said the helicopter was lower than 500 feet in their areas.

Humboldt County Sheriff spokesperson Selena Zorilla-Mendoza said that she wasn’t aware of any flights in the area. A question sent to PG&E asking whether they are flying in the area hasn’t been answered.
