Winter storm hammers the North Coast

NORTH COAST - Winter storm conditions continue to knock power out on the North Coast. Currently there are three main areas of concern. At 8:10 Thursday evening an equipment failure off Quarry Road south of Jacoby Creek knocked 333-PG&E customers out of power affecting that area south to Freshwater and Kneeland.

Scanner traffic indicated a shorted fuse as the problem that caused a power outage at 12th and I Streets in Eureka. 140-residents are without service there. In Blue Lake, 44-residents were still without electricity after an unknown issue.

High winds and rain continues to know limbs and wires down all over the count. Authorities advise if you do not have to travel, please stay indoors. There is no timetable for expected return of services. Crews are on scene and working to solve the problems.
