The Lake Wenatchee and Plain areas continue to deal with the effects of that massive snowstorm that toppled trees, darkened doorsteps, and displaced families for over a week this holiday season. Crews say they’re finally gaining the upper hand, though. Chelan County Public Utility District officials say they’ve restored power to all but a few dozen homes near Lake Wenatchee and Plain. Over 3000 customers were out of juice at the outage’s height.
Still a major concern, though…the devastation at Lake Wenatchee State Park. The area is off limits because of the sheer amount of devastation. No water, trees toppled like matchsticks, and park fixtures damaged because of the falling wood. KOHO’s Clint Strand talked to Park Manager Rick Halstead to get a sense of Mother Nature’s power, and when outdoor enthusiasts can expect to play there again.
