Forest Service Temporarily Closes All National Forests in California

Vallejo, CA...Due to unprecedented and historic fire conditions throughout the state, the USDA Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region is announcing a temporary closure of an additional ten National Forests, meaning all eighteen National Forests in California are now closed. The closure of the additional ten forests will be effective at 5:00 pm today. These additional forests include the Eldorado National Forest, Klamath National Forest, Lassen National Forest, Mendocino National Forest, Modoc National Forest, Six Rivers National Forest, Plumas National Forest, Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Tahoe National Forest, and Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. This decision will be re-evaluated daily as conditions change.





We had closed eight National Forests on Monday evening, Sept. 7, 2020. Explosive growth of fires throughout California during the day and late evening of Sept. 8th led to this updated decision.

“The number of large fires and extreme fire behavior we are seeing across the State is historic," said Regional Forester Randy Moore. "These temporary closures are necessary to protect the public and our firefighters, and we will keep them in place until conditions improve and we are confident that National Forest visitors can recreate safely. I ask all Californians and visitors to take these closures and evacuations seriously for their own safety and to allow our firefighters to focus on the mission of safely suppressing these fires ."

The Forest Service thanks our partners and the public for their cooperation and understanding of this monumental fire threat. It is critical that all Californians and national forest visitors follow these important closures and restrictions for their own safety and the safety of our firefighters. Citizens with specific questions within their area may call their local forests for more information.

The Forest Service manages 18 National Forests in the Pacific Southwest Region, which encompasses over 20 million acres across California, and assists forest landowners in California, Hawaii and the U.S. Affiliated Pacific Islands. National forests supply 50 percent of the water in California and form the watershed of most major aqueducts and more than 2,400 reservoirs throughout the state. For more information, visit www.fs.usda.gov/R5.

Trump, realizing the forests are federal property, ordered they rake all the leaves before they're reopened.

              Have you not seen this Racist Asian Indian here ranting about white people and calling us all Hillbillies and worse? This person is exactly what they are like behind your back, not to your face. Never turn your back to one.

              Had you grow up here and had to go to school here...you would know the extent of the cold and vicious heart of the local Me Walks - You Run. You would know that they absolutely HATE us, and would be very happy to stick a knife in your back when you turn it to them. Even today when we stupidly voted for them to have casinos because they refuse to do actual work that might just possibly benefit anyone other than their selfish selves. They only give to communities because if they didn't we would be stopping casinos. They don't give to other poor Indians and their casinos drag the small communities down with excessive drug dealing, rampant drug addiction and large increases in crime. Keep your blinders on imbecile.

                What do you expect whitey? You people murdered tens of millions of men, women and children. You had no problem raping the women even the children, then shooting them in the back. You're no better than Hitler was when gassing millions of Jewish people. See the resemblance? He too was white. Face it, you whites are the most evil of all the ethnic races. Now you have rioting in your streets all across this Nation because of your actions against others. Just because white people carry signs denouncing police violence doesn't forgive you of all your sins of your racist ways you still have just like your ancestors have always had had. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, does it?

The only thing more astonishing than Trump knowingly misleading the American people about the threat of a deadly virus is the fact that he admitted to lying on tape, to a man who already dragged him across the coals in an earlier book. Trump’s not just a liar. He’s a stupid liar.

      They aren’t anonymous to Jeffrey Goldberg, or to the 5 other reporters, including at Fox News.

      But that’s yesterday’s story. Today is the audio of Trump telling Bob Woodward that he knew the virus was 5x as deadly as the flu, airborne, and dangerous to young people too. In February!

      He lied about the pandemic, and look at the results. He shouldn’t be president for 5 more minutes.

        Trump knew the virus was deadly, communicable through the air and told everyone it was a hoax, it would all go away.

        Trump killed tens of thousands of Americans, without a second thought about it.

    What the Fu*k? Go cry on someone elses shoulder. You are being a selfish Flatlander. We are in the middle of the worst fire season ever and all you can do is complain because you can't use the forest. Hunting season is just right around the corner and these A-Hole hunters won't be able to hunt and possibly start an illegal campfire. You should be glad that the forests are shut down in order to save your house from a wildfire started from an Idiot camper or hunter.

    Welcome to reality, these conditions are typical of the foothills in the summer/fall. Get used to it. Truthfully, very little in our county plays out as the situational fantasy you imagined. The closest most of us get to that is reading of the crushed expectations experienced by newcomers like yourself.

Trump knew in February.
He knew that COVID-19 passes through the air.
He knew it is deadlier than the flu.
He knew it is dangerous to more than just our elderly and vulnerable.

He purposely downplayed the pandemic. And now, 190,000 Americans are dead.

        Your both wrong and right. It says both but only line 1 in the Death certificate gets recorded and used for state records. Hence why CDC changed the guidelines in late Jan to move Covid to line 1 when prior it would be on at the bottom of line 2 which does not get recorded. So for you news watchers and anti-social stars here is an honest real example.
        Prior to Jan. 2020 if you were hit by a bus and transported to the ER, before you died you felt weak, or coughed or lived long enough 24-48 hours and had a fever, line 1 would say trauma or sepsis. Now it MUST be reported as covid death on line 1 where trauma from a bus accident should be.
