Winter Storm

Here on the North coast, winter storms have traditionally been the time of year that adversely affects our quality of life. Power outages, shortages of fuel and supplies, limited communication with the outside world are situations that many of us have experienced living here in Humboldt County. Many would say that they are prepared to handle these situations as they have in years past. Unfortunately, that is not the case for many of our communities residents. Therefore, we have identified several web sites that can assist you in your education and preparation.
