The National Weather Service is predicting more heavy snow and cold temperatures in the foothills this weekend.
In an effort to collaborate over one of our most vulnerable populations, the City of Nevada City, Sierra Roots, Salvation Army and Nevada County have initiated their Extreme Weather Shelter Protocol to include Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights (February 16th through the morning of February 19th). This is an effort to continue to temporarily shelter homeless residents in our community during extreme weather. Hours of operation are 4:30 p.m. through 7:30 a.m. the next morning.
