Earthquake Update

Feather Publishing
5/28/2013
 

Life is beginning to return to normal in northern Plumas County. All Plumas County roadways and highways are open, but continue to watch for loose or falling rocks. Laboratory testing has cleared the Lake Almanor Mutual Water District system, so the ‘Boil Water Advisory’ has now been lifted. To help residents with disposal of broken or damaged televisions, computer screens, or other electronics, special E-Waste Events have been scheduled for the Chester Transfer Station and the Greenville Transfer Station this Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Electronic devices will be accepted at no charge at both locations.

Unfortunately, some seasonal home owners are returning to surprising and often hard-to-see structural damage due to the earthquake. Plumas County OES is urging property owners to do a thorough assessment of their property, inspecting for cracked foundations, broken or leaking water and sewer lines, or other damage that may have been caused by the earthquake. If any structural damage is found, owners are encouraged to report it by downloading the online survey at www.countyofplumas.com under ‘County News’ and emailing it to PlumasOES@gmail.com. You may also obtain or file a copy of the survey at your local Fire Department.

Plumas County will remain under an emergency proclamation until seasonal residents have a chance to discover and assess potential damage to their homes. So far, 40 homes have been reported damaged. Broken or toppled chimneys are the most common report, but broken water lines have caused flooding and water damage, and at least one structure has shifted off the foundation. The total damage caused by this quake is estimated to be over $870,000.

If you have any questions, please e mail: PlumasOES@gmail.com or call me at 530-283-6367
