Latest slide, flooding issues in Plumas

 

Caltrans announced that 24-hour traffic control is now in place on Highway 89 between Indian Falls and Moccasin (approximate mile post 12) due to a slide. Caltrans is warning that further slide activity could cause a closure. Motorists are advised to avoid the area.

Additionally, the National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the Middle Fork of the Feather River from Beckwourth to Clio, and toward the Cromberg/Sloat/Two Rivers areas. This warning will be in effect until the river falls below its flood stage. Earlier today the NWS had predicted an impact Friday into Saturday, but it’s now observing a pattern similar to 2017. Motorists are advised to turn around if they encounter flooded roads.

UPDATE:

The Sheriff’s Office is issuing an EVACUATION WARNING for the low-lying areas of the following zones:

PLU-101, POR-004, POR-005, POR-001, POR-006, POR-007, PLU-094, PLU-095, PLU-111, PLU-110, GRA-006, GRA-002, GRA-003, GRA-001, PLU-089, PLU-072.

This warning applies to all areas along the Feather River from A23 to Sloat and low-lying areas adjacent to the river in that area. If the warning is escalated, the Sheriff’s Office will provide an evacuation point(s) and will notify in person as well.

These areas have been identified as the highest threat to flood, however flooding could take place in areas outside of these identified zones. The Sheriff’s Office recommends residents remain mindful of their surroundings and their proximity to potentially flooded areas.
