The Building Department performed roof snow load sampling today in the Almanor Basin. This was done to determine the weight of snow on roofs in the area.
County supervisors took a series of steps Tuesday, Jan. 19, in preparation of roadwork on the Oroville-Quincy Highway that will leave a portion of the byway closed for as long as eight weeks.
The highway, also known as Bucks Lake Road/Big Creek Road or Forest Highway 119, runs from Quincy past Bucks Lake and down to Oroville. The work will take place on Big Creek Road.
The Plumas County Sheriff's Office has issued the following Training Bulletin:
SPECIAL INFORMATION/TRAINING BULLETIN
On 1/27/2010 The Plumas County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team will be conducting specialized training at 336 West Main St. (Plumas Bank) in Quincy from 1700Hrs. - 2100Hrs. (5:00pm - 9:00pm).
The Plumas County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team would like to take this opportunity to thank Plumas Bank and its employees for allowing us to obtain this valuable training.
As some Almanor Basin residents approached 48 hours without power, county officials declared a state of emergency late Friday afternoon, Jan. 22. The declaration makes the county eligible for state aid and financial assistance.
Supervisor Sherrie Thrall, who represents the Lake Almanor Basin, said the declaration was due in large part to conditions in Chester, which has been the hardest hit area in Plumas County. Heavy snowfall has toppled trees, which have taken out power lines, crashed through carports and landed on home roofs.
