CRESCENT CITY, CA -With continued wildfire activity impacting transmission lines, Pacific Power is closely monitoring the situation in Del Norte County. For the safety of the public and emergency responders, Pacific Power has de-energized a transmission line serving the Crescent City area. At this time, the restoration timeline is yet to be determined. Customers should continue to prepare for multiple days without power.
On August 20, 2023, Pacific Power provided a large commercial generator for businesses in coordination with the Del Norte County Emergency Operations Center, and residential generators continue to be deployed for our Medical Baseline Program customers. The commercial generator serves essential businesses including grocery stores, gas stations and pharmacies. The company is deploying additional residential generators to serve customers with medical needs, and more are enroute into the area. Pacific Power is closely monitoring all fire activity in the area and will turn the power back on for all customers when it is safe.
Two community resource centers have been established (open 8 a.m. – 10 p.m.) for impacted customers who are without power and need assistance (charging electronics, receiving information, water, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, non-perishable snacks, seating, security, etc.):
Del Norte High School – 1301 El Dorado St, Crescent City
Yurok Tribe – 225 Klamath Blvd, Klamath, CA 95548
