UPDATE, 9:40 a.m.: Power’s coming back area by area. Eureka’s back up — expect most major micropolitan areas to follow shortly.


Roughly 60,000 customers are without power across Humboldt County this morning due to downed transmission lines.

The Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services reports that winter weather caused the lines to fail.

PG&E says it’s currently working to fix the issue and that it expects power to be restored to the County before this afternoon.
