Lightning across Plumas County

Feather Publishing
7/8/2010

The first lightning storm of the season rolled across Plumas County Wednesday afternoon.  The storm moved up from the Tahoe/Truckee area to the Middle fork of the Feather River.  It then turned to the north east and moved across Quincy and up to Lake Almanor.

At one point  124 lightning strikes were reported in a one hour period.

Despite the numerous lightning strikes, Four small lighting fires were detected and controlled on the Plumas National Forest. There was limited moisture with the storm. Additional hold-over fires are a real possibility over the next few days.  Lightning is predicted this afternoon and Friday as well with some lightning still possible on Saturday.

The Wednesday fire near Cromberg apparently was not lightning caused and is still under investigation.
