San Andreas, CA — Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared a State of Emergency for Calaveras County related to last week’s winter storms.
Winds and heavy snowfall caused multiple power outages, downed trees and closed roads. The State of Emergency was requested by the Board of Supervisors on Monday. The county is now eligible to receive state funding to reimburse costs related to cleanup.
The Governor’s proclamation reads, “Whereas the circumstances of these storms, by reason of their magnitude, are or are likely to be beyond the control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of any single county, city and county, or city and require the combined forces of a mutual aid region or regions to combat.”
