The community is encouraged to attend a Mendocino Fire Recovery & Rebuilding Town Hall this evening. Federal, state and county leaders will be on hand starting at 630pm at Eagle Peak Middle School. Topics covered will include: a status update on debris removal and timeline from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Cal OES; a briefing from FEMA and Cal OES on long-term temporary housing at Kyen Campground; an update on the partial reconstruction of the infrastructure in the Redwood Valley Water District; and a look at the Year Ahead with information to help residents be successful with rebuilding their homes and lives. The County Recovery Team will also provide an update on services and programs available for fire survivors. If you can’t attend the meeting it will be streamed on the Mendocino County YouTube Channel.

This afternoon is the official ground breaking for the Kyen Campground Fire Survivor Housing. At 4:30 p.m., Mendocino County, FEMA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold a ceremony to commemorate the start of the disaster housing project going on 75 acres at the Lake Mendocino Kyen campground. It will have up to 70 temporary housing units to accommodate those displaced by the Redwood Complex wildfires. Primary work starts this week to add sewer, water and electric for the housing sites. This is the first time a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campground has been used to house disaster survivors and they say it could pave the way for future partnerships between the agencies on disaster response.

If you lost power in the Clear Lake Riviera last night, it was due to a car crash in which a vehicle hit a power pole. The CHP says around 8 p.m. a car hit a pole around the 11000 block of Point Lakeview Road near Kelseyville. Kelseyville and Lake County Fire Protection District firefighters came out to block the road where the lines went down near the Westwind Mobile Home Park and presumably help the driver. But the driver apparently ran from the scene leaving the car about 20 feet down the embankment. Power went out to approximately 1,000 Pacific Gas and Electric customers.
