There are multiple road closures in Paradise due to strong offshore, northeast winds across the North State, Sacramento Valley, and Northern Sierra.
As of 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, fallen trees or downed power lines caused the closure of the following roads:
- Clark Road between Skyway and Forest Service Lane
- Elliot Road between Ingalls Road and Copeland Road
- Lofty Lane off Skyway
- Pentz Road at Malibu Drive
- Stark Lane
- Franke Lane
- Stearns Road at Pearson Road
- Wagstaff Road at Van Fossen Road
High winds are expected to intensify throughout the morning and remain gusty on-and-off into tonight.
Due to widespread power outages in the Paradise and Magalia area, a Red Cross evacuation center is open at the Paradise Ridge Senior Center at 877 Nunneley Road in Paradise. At this time, the evacuation center is not an overnight shelter.
