Press release from PG&E:

PG&E is going to be conducting helicopter patrols in southern Humboldt starting tomorrow, May 15 and flying through Sunday, May 19. The patrols are for compliance inspections. The helicopters will be flying during daylight hours and will be surveying PG&E equipment in the following areas: Garberville, Alderpoint, Blocksburg, Bell Springs, Ruth Lake, Dinsmore, Bridgeville and Myers Flat/Fruitland.

We know that residents in the Humboldt County area often have questions when they see helicopters flying overhead. We are aware that customers value their privacy and want to reassure the public that PG&E is only looking at our equipment. If you could help get the word out to your audience, we would appreciate it.

Done! Take it away, Rod.
