as of 2/10/17
9 a.m.: Leaving or gaining access to Plumas County is increasingly not an option. According to the CHP, the only route still open is from Highway 70 through Portola, and that could be in jeopardy as well, as the river continues to rise. Highway 70 through the Feather River Canyon continues to be closed with no estimate of reopening. Highway 89 is closed on both sides of Greenville, again with no estimate of reopening. In the event of an emergency, 4-wheel drive emergency vehicles could access the area from the Chester side, but it is completely closed south of Crescent Mills. Highway 89 is also closed at Clio. County Road A-24 is closed and Highway 49 is being assessed by Caltrans.
