Cold Weather Poses Risk to Pets and Lower Snow Levels Make Some Travel Tricky
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA) urges Californians to prepare for more wet weather, bringing additional rainfall and high winds as well as an increased likelihood of mudslides and debris flows in and around watersheds that were recently burned.
The winter storm over the weekend produced unusually cold temperatures and significant snowfall. These conditions, primarily the low water density snow that has fallen, lead toward a significant increase in avalanche danger in the higher elevations, specifically on NW-N-NE facing slopes. Areas along ridge tops that received a high wind loading of snow are also subject to high risk of avalanche.
Due to poor weather, United Blood Services in Reno has canceled the Quincy area’s blood drive, scheduled for Tuesday, December 8, between 1 and 7 p.m.
Donors who signed up for the drive are being advised by phone and e-mail that the drive has been canceled. UBS sends its regrets and apologizes for any inconvenience the cancellation may cause potential donors.
The next Quincy blood drive will be held Tuesday, March 9, 2010.
