The victims of the 2023 blizzard continue to mount in Plumas County: Bucks Lake Lodge and a structure at Almanor West are among the most recent casualties.
Not a lot of details are known, but Supervisor Greg Hagwood who represents the Bucks Lake area, said that the entrance to the lodge was heavily damaged. The lodge had been rebuilt recently following a fire. “We’re not going to know the extent of the damage to the lodge or to other structures until the snow melts,” Hagwood said this morning, March. 17. He suspects that as the snow melts, and areas become more accessible, much more damage will be uncovered not only in the Bucks Lake area, but throughout the county, especially where there are vacation homes that haven’t been accessed in a while.
It was also reported yesterday that a garage collapsed near Manzanita at Almanor West. Earlier this week, Plumas News reported on two mobile homes collapsing on Miwok Trail in Graeagle, as well as some small outbuildings.
