The slides have rerouted the river onto Caribou Road, flooding the road and affecting access for Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) and partners. Continued flooding may also cause damage to Caribou Road. There is no damage to PG&E facilities in the area, including dams.
Caribou Road is closed from the junction with California State Highway 70 at Belden to the Caribou Afterbay Dam at Belden Forebay.
A Type 3 Incident Command Team is being set up and the Forest Service is working with PG&E and other partners to work on solutions.
