Posted By on Tue, Oct 29, 2019 at 5:37 PM

The Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services is reporting PG&E has advised that the county is no longer in the scope of the Public Safety Power Shutoff planned to commence at 7 p.m. due to diminishing elevated fire conditions.

The release states that Humboldt County will remain with power throughout the evening, and that PG&E is hopeful it can restore power tonight to those who are still down from the Oct. 26 shutdown.

"At this time the National Weather Service does not foresee any weather patterns that would result in a PSPS event in the near future," the release states.

And here's the Humboldt County Office of Education's updating list of school closures.

PG&E power outage Tuesday evening UPDATE
According to PG&E representatives, “Due to diminished weather conditions, Humboldt County is now beneath the wind threshold for a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS).” The information we are receiving from PG&E is that Humboldt County is no longer in scope and will remain with power throughout the evening. Continue to be prepared for future outages and follow updates from the Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services (OES).

There are still communities in Humboldt who have not been restored from the previous PSPS. PG&E advises they hope to re-energize tonight.

At this time the National Weather Service does not foresee any weather patterns that would result in a PSPS event in the near future.

This release is intended to update the public on PSPS activity information provided by PG&E. This office is not able to guarantee the accuracy of the information provided and the public should consider this release as general information and be prepared for a PSPS event that may have different timing and/or duration than predicted.
