PG&E restores power to the remaining customers affected by the winter storms


HUMBOLDT COUNTY, Calif.(KIEM)- Today, PG&E crews have successfully restored power to all businesses and residences affected by the winter storms a few weeks ago.

At the peak of the storm, about 10 thousand customers were impacted. The last customers they restored power to were those located in rural areas and those difficult to reach.

“We had more than 900 locations damaged in Humboldt, Trinity, and Mendocino counties because of these storms….. In one of those 900 locations, we had to repair more than 200 power poles alone to take a look at one type of equipment that we had to replace,” said Deanna Contreras, Spokesperson for PG&E.
