[UPDATE: Power on] Petrolia Area Residents Have Been Without Power for About 48 Hours

PG&E FEATURE Candle electricity powerInformation from the Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services:

Approximately 300 customers have been without power in the Petrolia area for about 48 hours, following storm damage to a major transmission line. PG&E is working on a temporary generator to provide power to most of the impacted customers while repairs are completed over the next few days.

The Petrolia Volunteer Fire Department is assessing needs and working with the community to assist residents with critical power resources.

Please review the linked generator safety info from PG&E to ensure that you’re using the right generator for your needs during power outages, and to protect your family from carbon monoxide poisoning by ensuring proper ventilation. Carbon monoxide detectors are inexpensive, can be battery-powered, and should be used when generators are operating near enclosed structures.


UPDATE: Power is back on.
