Humboldt County sheriff proclaims local emergency related to Fleener Creek/Centerville landslide

Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal has proclaimed a local emergency as a result of the significant impact of the Fleener Creek/Centerville landslide located west of Ferndale.

These ongoing landslides have been progressing significantly since January and are now threatening to impact the main entry and exit route to multiple residences, ranches and recreational areas managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

This is a clear threat to the safety of Humboldt County residents and will require immediate protective actions to ensure safe routes of travel are retained, and access to hazard areas are limited; these impacts are exhausting and exceed available county resources.

The Humboldt County Department of Public Works and Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services are actively engaged in exploring options for alternative routes.

A local emergency proclamation is a prerequisite to request state or federal assistance for landslide related response and recovery efforts.
