A nice rockfall closed Highway 70 in Plumas County
Meanwhile, a little ways south, Lake Tahoe’s water levels are back up above the natural rim, thanks to precipitation from the massive storm system that pushed across Northern California this weekend.
Data from the U.S. Geological Survey shows that water levels at the Tahoe City dam, near the outlet of the Truckee River, rose almost a half of a foot in 24 hours. Meanwhile, more than 2 feet of snow accumulated on the mountaintops surrounding the Tahoe Basin.
