The Governor’s Office of Emergency Services is coordinating closely with San Bernardino County Officials to provide assistance to the communities impacted by this storm. This includes working with Caltrans to bring in additional snow plows and road crews, opening a shelter for residents unable to get home and coordinating with law enforcement to escort essential services providers, such as power companies, food and water deliveries, as well as, services providers for vulnerable populations.
This remains a dynamic and evolving situation and the State Operations Center in Mather, California continues to be activated to respond to storm impacts and render support.
Weather conditions are forecasted to worsen in the coming days. The state reminds members of the public in the strongest possible terms to heed instructions from first responders and to avoid unnecessary mountain travel so that first responders can focus on clearing the roads and help communities reopen as soon as possible.
