River blockage 

Filed under: Uncategorized — tarawings @ 4:15 pm

From BigSurKate:

BIG SUR RIVER BLOCKAGE OF CONCERN

Posted by bigsurkate

I just received this at 3:45 pm from MoCo OES
Lew Bauman ask that I respond back to you. This has been elevated to our OES Emergency Manager who is having discussions with our Resource Management Agency on what we can do or make happen quickly.

What would be helpful is if you can reach back to the resident(s) in that area and ask that they monitor things and call 911 if things start to digress and the situation presents itself as an immediate threat. We are concerned as they are that no one is caught in any kind of flooding or dangerous situation. They should obviously remove themselves from harm’s way if the situation calls for it.

We are working as fast as possible to get some resolution to this before the river gets to a dangerous level, i.e.: flood stage.

I tried to call, but as you stated cell service is spotty at best.

I’ll keep you advised as this moves forward and if you can assist us by acting as the conduit to the residents it would be greatly appreciated.
5 mins later I got an email saying they would not be doing anything during the storm. A few minutes after that, I got an email from Carl Holm saying he had contacted SP. I am also informed that Ken Wright has contacted State Parks to get local equipment out to pull the redwoods to the bank. At present the fallen trees are diverting the river against the west side of the riverbank, undercutting more ground beneath more redwoods likely to fall. He also said there are trees across the river by the PBS state park sewer plant.
