Power Restoration May Happen This Afternoon in Lake and Mendocino Counties

While PG&E os continuing to shut off power to customers in parts of the state – they are also starting to turn the power back on for some. Restoration of power for Humboldt County started last night. State Senator Mike McGuire reports that restoration of power in Lake, and Mendocino, Counties may start taking place this afternoon. This process could take several hours while PG&E completes line inspections. PG&E says additional resources are poised to support the restoration process, including 45 helicopters and more than 6,300 on-the-ground field personnel. They say inspections, repairs and restoration can begin once the weather event has passed and it is safe to do so.
