On 1 March 2023, California Governor Gavin Newsome declared a State of emergency for the San Bernardino County, California, counties of Amador, Kern, Los Angeles, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, Nevada, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Sierra, Sonoma and Tulare. Days later. Governor Newsome expanded the State of Emergency to include additional counties including Butte, Calaveras, Del Norte, El Dorado, Fresno, Glenn, Humboldt, Imperial, Inyo, Kings, Lake, Mendocino, Merced, Monterey, Napa, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, San Benito, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Stanislaus, Tuolumne and Yuba.

Authorities are reporting thirteen individuals have died during these storms which buried the San Bernardino Mountains under feet of snow, trapping people in their homes, limiting rescue efforts and paralyzing travel.

All the recent heavy snow in the San Bernardino National Forest has challenged efforts to reach residents requiring assistance. The San Bernardino National Forest is home to the largest resident population of any national forest in the United States.

– By the end of the 1 March 2023 storm, the area around Running Springs, California, measure up to 150 inches (12.5 feet) of snow.

– As of 6 March 2023, residents in Twin Peaks, California, were facing more than 100 inches of snow on the ground.

– While residents have had success keeping access to their homes clear, the 20 foot high mounds of snow surrounding their homes has continued to grow.

– As of 3 March 2023, the National Weather Service had recorded 100 inches of snow on the ground 1 mile north-northeast of Lake Arrowhead, an unincorporated community in San Bernardino County.

The Fox Weather channel is reporting serious snow impacts to other counties in California.

“Even those farther north in the usually snowier Sierra haven’t been spared. Some mountain areas near Lake Tahoe received 10 to 12 feet of snow in just seven days, topped by an estimated 144-inch new snow total at China Peak and 114 inches at Soda Springs. In Placer County, which is home to a chunk of the Sierra Nevada and the higher elevations of Interstate 80 in central California, people in nearby communities have been stuck inside for at least five days, according to Chief Brian Estes with the Placer County Fire Department. He said Donner Pass, which is just about 45 minutes east of their headquarters along the summit of Interstate 80, had as much as 300 inches of snow currently on the ground.”
