One of the largest outages, according to the PG&E outage map, is in the Dow's Prairie neighborhoods behind the airport in McKinleyville, where residents are slated to see their lights turn back on around 8 p.m. tonight.
Dow's Prairie School is closed because of the outage, the Humboldt County Office of Education reports. Other schools in the McKinleyville area are open.
The county reports that PG&E has closed Dows Prairie Road at Arthur Lane due to downed power lines. There is no current estimate of when the road will reopen.
