TAHOE CITY, Calif. — As winter weather conditions continue to wreak havoc in the Sierra leaving many residents without power, Placer County has opened four warming/charging centers in the North Lake Tahoe area.
All four locations provide the public a place to stay warm and charge their phones.
People should not expect food and water at these locations, and pets are not allowed.
Warming center and charging station locations include:
221 Fairway Drive
875 National Avenue
10356 Truckee Airport Road
305 Squaw Valley Road
“Because of the extensive power outages throughout North Tahoe, we have opened these warming/charging centers to give people a place to keep warm and power up their communication devices so they can stay in contact with friends and family and receive emergency updates sent through Placer Alert, our emergency notification system” said John McEldowney, Placer County emergency services manager.
Note that TART will not be running today. Transportation to shelter may be an issue for some community members.
