An Atmospheric River has been forecasted for the Alpine County region starting Thursday, March 9th and will remain in effect until Saturday, March 11th. It is recommended that residents significantly limit travel due to significant travel impacts from mixed precipitation events. Due to potential road closures and public safety access, travel is only recommended for necessary reasons. Additionally, normal runoff behavior will likely be impacted due to the
limited ability for runoff to access creeks, rivers and drainages via normal means. There is a high likelihood storm runoff will impact any low-lying areas with poor drainage like roadways and driveways.
The County will be providing sandbags and sand at Station 91 and Station 92 in the Markleeville and Woodfords areas. For more information on sandbags please contact Community Development at 530-694-2140.
