Genoa, Nev. — On Tuesday, members of Nevada’s congressional delegation urged the President to sign a federal disaster declaration in support of a letter sent by Gov. Joe Lombardo regarding last month’s flooding.
While specifically citing Churchill, Eureka and Lincoln counties, a national declaration would likely free up funds for damage in the rest of the state, like Douglas, for instance.
Rep. Mark Amodei told Nevada Newsmakers that he predicts the lands bills will make it through the House of Representatives this year. Legacy Land & Water’s Jacques Etchegoyhen confirmed that includes the Douglas bill.
East Fork Fire Protection District Trustees plan to discuss adoption of Wildland Urban Interface regulations next month if possible. The regulations were introduced on Tuesday.
Adult crafters are scheduled to work on lady bugs at the Minden Branch of the Douglas County Public Library 4-6 p.m. today if you’re looking for someplace to hang out and do something with your hands.
The thing about cold fronts is that they bring freezing temperatures. Fredericksburg resident Jeff Garvin reports 18 degrees at his place. It’s 18 degrees at the airport and 24 degrees up on the bench in Genoa.
We’re looking at 15-20 degrees colder today and a good chance that it will drop below freezing tonight, according to a statement issued by the National Weather Service this morning. This cycle is going to continue for a while, so maybe hold off planting those flowers for a bit.
Expect sunny skies and a high near 52 that will feel colder in the 10-15 mph west wind, that is forecast to gust to 25 mph. Tonight’s low could hit 27 degrees in Minden.
