Storm damage
Mike Cognetti, roads superintendent for Tuolumne County, shared these photos on Jan. 9 of a rock-and-debris slide at Kelly Grade and Marshes Flat Road below a steep slope southwest of Moccasin. Cognetti said localized flooding was widespread throughout the county, with culverts, streams and ditches overwhelmed by water flows and rock and debris slides in multiple locations.

Damage to public property in Tuolumne County and other costs associated with massive winter storms since late December topped at least $6.2 million, according to initial estimates provided by the county Office of Emergency Services on Friday.

The county has also received reports about damage to seven homes and two businesses caused by the storms, and wants to hear from anybody else who suffered damages in hopes of making a case for state and federal disaster assistance.
