Mudslides, downed trees follow rain

LAKE COUNTY – A night of steady rain brought some much-needed moisture to the county, along with some problems on the roadways.


The California Highway Patrol reported rock and mudslides are various points around the county, beginning Tuesday night and throughout the day Wednesday.


Small slides were reported on Highway 29, two miles south of Hofacker near Lower Lake, and along Highway 20 west of Paradise Cove, west of Blue Lakes and near Irwin Drive, CHP reported.


Rock also were reported in several spots along the Hopland Grade, according to the CHP incident logs.


With the ground filled with moisture, downed trees also were a concern. The CHP reported a falled tree, 24 inches in diameter, blocking the roadway on Spruce Grove Road Extension shortly before 6 a.m.


A commuter reportedly hit the tree, which the County Roads Department was called out to remove.
