This morning Cliff Berkowitz spoke with Paul DeMark, Public Information Officer at College of the Redwoods about this morning’s campus-wide evacuation. He detailed that it indeed was a bomb threat. The threat apparently appeared on the Facebook page of a CR student. The student then contacted the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department saying that his Facebook page was hacked and warned them of the threat. All students and faculty have been evacuated including all residence halls. Bomb squads are combing the campus for the bomb. Thus far there has been no incident. A decision to allow students and faculty to return is pending.

The National Weather Service’s Troy Nicolini, ever right on top of matters both atmospheric and terrestrial, notes that there is a moderate danger of sneaker waves this weekend. Not a red alert kind of deal, except …
While this is not a profoundly dangerous sneaker wave event, there will be high beach visitation rates — especially because of the Clam Beach Run — and therefore we want to remind everyone of the beach safety tips below.
So go ahead and do that. Here’s those beach safety tips. Stay safe.

Big drama in the 95503 at the moment.
A power pole fire/explosion in Pine Hill took out electricity to some 900 customers. An on-the-ground Friend o’ the LoCO says that neighbors heard a large “POP,” after which power was briefly gone. A KHUM caller said that the air all around the site smelled of gunpowder. Not clear if others are still experiencing outages.
Unrelated: There is a bad accident at the intersection of Highway 101 and Humboldt Hill. Kym wrote about it while this post was in progress.

Says John Gullam of the Northern California Community Blood Bank:
We have had significant usage of blood components over the last few days and, combined with the decreased collections because of the holidays, we currently have a Critical Need for Type O and A blood donations. Type A+ in particular is our most critical need.
You an A or an O? Roll up your sleeve. There are bloodwagons at the Eureka Mall and Costco today.
