For Eastern Plumas Health Care it’s time to start the bus, and for community members and EPHC advocates it’s time to get on. On June 4, Plumas County residents are invited to attend the We Care for California Day in Sacramento to support Senate Bill 640 and Assembly Bill 900.
Opening ceremonies for Plumas National Forest’s new equestrian campground facilities will be held Saturday, June 1st, at the Snake Lake Campground on the Mt. Hough Ranger District. Festivities begin at 1:00 p.m.
Amenities at the campground now include: eight new campsites designed for equestrian users, eight corrals, nine family campsites, picnic tables, and campfire rings. Activities at the site include fishing, hiking, horseback riding, off-highway vehicle trail riding, and non-motorized boating.
Plumas County will remain under an emergency proclamation until all businesses and homeowners have a chance to discover and assess potential damage.
Over $1M in damages has been reported, and over 50 homes in the Lake Almanor basin have been impacted. Broken or toppled chimneys continue to be the most common report, but broken water lines have caused flooding and water damage, decks, porches and windows have been damaged, and at least one structure has shifted off the foundation.
