The power has started to flicker back on for some lucky locals, according to the Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services. But most folks remain powerless this morning, and PG&E is saying that many can expect to be without electricity through the next public safety power shutoff (PSPS), scheduled to begin Tuesday and last at least into Wednesday.

If your cell phone or medical device is in need of a charge, the locations listed below can help you out.
