Plumas County will remain under an emergency proclamation until all businesses and homeowners have a chance to discover and assess potential damage.
Over $1M in damages has been reported, and over 50 homes in the Lake Almanor basin have been impacted. Broken or toppled chimneys continue to be the most common report, but broken water lines have caused flooding and water damage, decks, porches and windows have been damaged, and at least one structure has shifted off the foundation.
If any structural damage is found, owners are encouraged to report it by downloading the online survey from the Plumas County OES webpage at www.countyofplumas.com and emailing it to PlumasOES@gmail.com. You may also obtain or file a copy of the survey at your local Fire Department.
