Following a meeting with the California Department of Education and California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, statewide preparedness efforts are underway in anticipation of the current weather report predicting high winds, downed trees and powerlines, and rain with potential areas of mudslides and flooding across the state.  The Governor has pre-emptively declared California in a state of emergency. This atmospheric river has the potential to impact areas of Nevada County.
