Northern California is beginning to assess the damage caused by two wet and windy storms that slammed into the area starting Friday, and in Plumas County the outlook is not good.
Strong winds took down countless trees and power lines in Plumas County, prompting the sheriff to declare a local state of emergency Monday. The Plumas County Board of Supervisors are expected to ratify the declaration Tuesday.
Sheriff Greg Hagwood says he estimates that the storm has caused several million dollars in damage throughout the county and badly damaged businesses, homes and county buildings.
Hagwood told Action News Now that cleanup could take weeks.
PG&E says there are still 2,850 customers in Plumas County without power, but they hope to have service restored Monday night.
