NEVADA – Mono County in California is warning residents to prepare for another incoming storm that is expected to hit the area later this week, likely on Friday or Saturday.
The county is urging residents to prepare by digging out propane tanks and lines and clearing roofs as much as possible.
While the storm is expected to bring between one to three inches of precipitation, it will be warmer than previous storms the area has seen, with almost all of the precipitation expected to be rain at 7,000 feet and lower. Areas from 7,000-9,000 feet will see a mixture of rain and snow, and those above 9,000 feet will see snow.
The county’s concern is that the falling rain will be absorbed by the existing snowpack, creating additional weight stress for roofs and other facilities that could cause structural failures.
Crews from Caltrans and CAL Fire are arriving in the area to help with snow removal, while a warming center has been set up in Bridgeport at Memorial Hall.
The center will provide three meals a day, and there are currently plans to keep it open through the coming storm and into next week if needed.
