One person is dead and four hurt after two boats collided at Lake Mendocino Saturday night. The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office says they are looking into several factors surrounding the crash that killed 26-year-old Miguel Corona of Ukiah around 1030pm Saturday near the North Boat Ramp. They say one of the boats had just left the dock as the other was approaching it. The Yolo County Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol Unit is assisting in the investigation, which is looking at possible alcohol involvement, the darkness and speed of the boats, and whether or not the driver of one of the boats fled the scene.

The Lake County Office of Emergency Services is updating their Local Hazard Mitigation Plan and will be holding a couple of public meetings about it. The 2012 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan includes preparation for floods, drought, wildfires, severe weather and other concerns, with the goal of reducing overall losses during a disaster. Lake County OES says only communities that have a FEMA-approved Hazard Mitigation Plan are eligible to apply for both pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant money and for lower costs of flood insurance for residents so they need it be as accurate as possible and encourage you to come listen and speak up:
