Winter arrives at Lassen

Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014 — The recent storms and transition to icy winter conditions have closed the Lassen Volcanic National Park Highway to vehicle traffic for the season as of Monday, Dec. 1. The park highway is open to the Manzanita Lake area at the north entrance and to the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center, one mile inside the southwest entrance to the park.

“A winter visit to Lassen will transport you to a snow-covered landscape just waiting to be explored,” said acting park superintendent Steve Gibbons. “We invite you to the park to snowshoe, ski, go sledding or enjoy a cup of hot chocolate by the fireplace in the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center.”

Cal OES issues statement on forthcoming rain storms

Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014 — The Director of the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services, Mark Ghilarducci has released the following statement about the statewide rain system expected later this week:

"This week California is expected to experience high winds and heavy rains in several parts of our state. For many of us, these rains are a welcome sign for agricultural and domestic water needs. We live in the arid West and this year has been historically dry. Any help that Mother Nature provides will alleviate extremely low water levels and is greatly needed.

We know that it can flood anywhere that we receive heavy rains. This storm will present a risk of flash flooding and debris slides in areas where ground conditions have not adapted to the saturation. This year was also a significant fire season for Northern and Southern California and burned areas are especially at risk for debris slides. Even regions that don't experience regular seasonal flooding could see flash flooding during this intense storm system, which could be the largest to date of this year's rainy season.
