10 am – Brian just came back from checking this out and has this to say:

“Just came back from the fernwood slide on from the south. Multiple power lines down and a there was a car pushed off the road when it slid. Everyone is safe. I think this one will take quite awhile to clear.”

  5. Kate, where is the final destination to these giant redwoods that have fallen on roadways? Caltrans has a lot of work on its hands this week.

  6. Unsure, but when the one at HML let go, it was slabbed and auctioned off. It was HUGE

  7. Do you expect Monterey County to announce a state of emergency declaration with FEMA assistance too?

  8. I would hope so, as will Santa Cruz which has been inundated, and SLO which has many, many road closures and mud slides. Can’t keep up with 3 counties, so focusing on Big Sur and Carmel Valley. Can’t really even keep up with Monterey. But just got notice Highway 17 just opened.

  11. Wonder why the Fernwood blockage isn’t on the CHP web site yet?

  12. No one can get to it to confirm, except from the north, and there is the emergency in CV wit the flooding, and I’ll bet they are overwhelmed.

  13. I wonder if incident 227 on the CHP site actually means BS State Park not JPB? The timing is right and the description sounds like what Brian reported above.

  14. Or there could be another one? I’ll check it out. But BS State Park is not right, either.
