MAGALIA, Calif. - A community center in Magalia has been closed since January because of damage from a winter storm.

Action News Now Reporter Christina Vitale showed why repairs still need to be made months later.  

The De Sabla Guild Community Center used to be the hub for the upper ridge. People came to the center to gather for events but on the night of Jan. 5, gusts of rain and wind caused a tree to fall and land on the roof of their building.

Board member of the community center, Phil Howard said neighbors helped remove the tree, leaving huge holes and some interior damage to the ceiling.

Howard said they are looking for help from their community to fund the needed repairs.

"We don't need somebody to come in here and give us a million dollars," Howard said. "In fact, if we can get donations from people we're putting together one board at a time and if they could fund us one board at a time, we would be grateful for that."

Howard said they have not been able to use the center for events since the tree fell.

The De Sabla Guild Community Center used to hold regular events including breakfasts, music and karaoke nights, Christmas parties and more.

The building was also used as a recovery and distribution center after the Camp Fire.

Showers are lingering across Northern California tonight and snow levels are dipping to around 5000'. Mostly mountain showers and lower snow levels are on the way for your Saturday and then we'll dry out for your Sunday.
