PG&E Working to Restore Power to Those Still Without It

Press release from PG&E:

PG&EPG&E crews are working safely and as quickly as possible to restore power to customers in Mendocino and Humboldt Counties whose power has been affected since Friday due to snow and trees impacting power lines.

The good news is that hundreds of customers’ power in Humboldt County (Petrolia and Garberville) was restored last night when PG&E crews installed primary generation; however, crews are still making repairs on those lines. And there are still 20 customers without power in Garberville.

Right now, PG&E crews are now working safely and as quickly as possible to restore power to:

20 customers in Garberville (mentioned above)
40 in Honeydew
4 in Laytonville
20 in Cummings
20 in Leggett
19 in Westport

In addition, PG&E is using helicopters today to make repairs on the power lines – we will only fly along power lines TODAY and TONIGHT, and possibly tomorrow morning in:

Rio Dell
On Underwood Lane in Leggett

The helicopter will be:

Humboldt County – Bell Huey, Tail Registration N4582D

Mendocino County – Bell 407, Tail Registration N406PJ

  • Is that who flew VERY low directly over the school at about 3:30 today? In a NW beeline, black and white chopper.
