As this is being written at 2:45pm on Saturday, October 26th, PG&E is advising that power for Humboldt County will be shut off at 7pm due to fire risk of high wind and low humidity. There is still no firm commitment for how long the power will be off, as various reports say it could be 12 hours or 4 days.
Ferndale Volunteer Fire Department has generator power and will be hosting a public recharge station at the Fire Hall on Brown Street. It will be open Sunday, the 27th, at 8am and hopefully will be staffed until 7pm unless the power is restored earlier.
Priority will be given to citizens that need to recharge medical devices, but you’re welcome to recharge phones and other portable devices as needed.
