SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County Board of Supervisors has declared a new state of emergency due to last week's snowstorm.

The sheriff's office says that the declaration was prompted because of the possibility of mudslides and damage to county roads. 

The declaration allows for additional resources from the state and federal government to assist as the county cleans up and digs out. 

"At one point we had the city of Shasta Lake with no power, we had the city of Anderson with no power, we had the city of Redding with mostly no power and tens of thousands of people in the county with no power," said Eric Magrini, Shasta County Sheriff's Office undersheriff. "So I know that PG&E has brought in contract crews and they have been working diligently and have had a lot of the power restored today." 

The declaration will stand for 60 days, and if needed, the sheriff's office could ask for an extension.
