Yosemite Valley to Close to Visitors Friday as Powerful Storm Moves In

Yosemite Valley to Close to Visitors Friday as Powerful Storm Moves In”

On Wednesday, the National Weather Service in Hanford estimated Yosemite Valley could receive 3 to 4 inches of rain and the Merced River could reach above the moderate flood stage at the height of 15.8 feet. All other areas of the park will remain open, conditions permitting.

Visitors who are already there are being told to pack their bags and leave by 5:00 p.m. Friday for safety reasons.

After the storm passes, authorities will assess road and facility conditions to determine when Yosemite Valley, home to numerous park's picturesque waterfalls and cliffs, can reopen.

Services and campgrounds will remain open in Wawona, Hodgen Meadow, Crane Flat, and El Portal but they may close at any time to guarantee the safety of visitors and employees. The Big Trees Lodge, the El Portal Market, and the El Portal gas station are anticipated to remain open during the storm.

YARTS buses will not run to the park on Saturday or Sunday.

Known for its steep granite walls and waterfalls, Yosemite Valley attracts more than three million visitors every year.

Yosemite National Park is canceling all camping reservations this weekend because of the storm. "Yosemite National Park and the entire central Sierra Nevada region expect significant impacts from the incoming storm".
