STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARED IN FIVE COUNTIES

Fires now floods.  As severe winter storms continue across California, Governor Gavin Newsom has issued an emergency proclamation for the counties of Amador, Glenn, Lake, Mendocino and Sonoma to help communities respond to and recover from dangerous flooding, mudslides and damage to critical infrastructure.

On February 21, the Governor previously issued emergency proclamations for the counties of Calaveras, El Dorado, Humboldt, Los Angeles, Marin, Mendocino, Modoc, Mono, Monterey, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Mateo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Shasta, Tehama, Trinity, Ventura, and Yolo.

The emergency proclamations direct Caltrans to formally request immediate assistance through the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief Program and the Office of Emergency Services to provide assistance to local governments.

Please do what you can to stay safe.
