Storm damage has forced the emergency closure of Caribou Road in the Plumas National Forest.
Caribou is the access road to Butt Reservoir near Lake Almanor off of Highway 70 in the Feather River Canyon .
It's also known as Butt-Gansner Road and is closed from Belden Dam to Butt Lake Dam.
Alternate access to the reservoir is available by taking Plumas County Road 305, also known as Butt Valley Road, near the community of Canyon Dam off Highway 89.
There won't be an estimated time for reopening Caribou Road until the forest service and PG & E crews can fully assess the extent of damage and come up a design for repairs.
