January 16, 2019 – The National Weather Service is predicting heavy RAINS and winds in the foothills tonight, January 16th, and tomorrow, January 17th.
In an effort to collaborate over one of our most vulnerable populations, the City of Nevada City, Sierra Roots and the County of Nevada have activated their Extreme Weather Shelter Protocol for Friday, January 18th with a special earlier opening time of 12:00 noon.
Although Nevada City’s public facilities are currently reserved, an Extreme Weather Shelter will be available to shelter homeless citizens Friday in an effort to temporarily shelter homeless citizens in our community after the storm so they can dry out and get some warm food.

Earlier opening time of 12:00 noon. Closing 7:00am Saturday, January 19th.
