Destructive Wind Event Brings Heavy Damage to Yosemite National Park
After an assessment was done in Yosemite National Park following a destructive wind event, the park says it will likely stay closed through Friday. Photos of the aftermath show plenty of damage to cars, equipment, buildings and infrastructure in the popular national park.
“Yosemite National Park will likely remain closed until Friday morning as the park conducts damage assessments, repairs facilities, and clears trees,” park officials said in a statement. “While some facilities have been damaged, no injuries have been reported as a result of the high winds in the park.”
High winds were felt throughout Northern California during the rare wind event, with Tahoe ski resorts closed, thousands losing power and 91-mph winds detected in the Bay Area.
We will update the next possible opening date as more information is made available.
