Hello Ponderosa Members,

News flash from Fire Chief Mick Lamar:

  • The Ponderosa evacuation alert level has been lowered to a Level 1, which means that residents should be aware of the danger that exists, and monitor local media outlets for information. Residents with special needs, in particular, should take note.

News from Chelan County this morning:

US 2 Both Directions - US 2 has reopened through Tumwater Canyon, just west of Leavenworth, from milepost 99 to milepost 85, following an earlier closure due to fire activity. There will be pilot car controlled traffic from the candy store at milepost 96, three miles west of Leavenworth, to milepost 86.2 near the junction of US 2 and SR 207 at Coles Corner.

In depth fire information (including maps) is available at http://www.nwccinfo.blogspot.com/

Best Regards,
Mary Cox

Mick said Ponderosa is still at a level 2 alert – and looks like we might stay that way through the week, as they are currently doing some back burning and the weather forecast calls for thunder and lightning later this week (Wednesday/Thursday).

Hwy 2 is still not open yet (from Coles Corner to Leavenworth).  The detour is open.  

Mick is still advising to only come out to the Ponderosa if necessary. 

Here is a recent post regarding the highway closure (source:  Chelan County Emergency Management Facebook page) –

7/28/2014 7 a.m.
US 2 Both Directions - US 2 remains closed from Coles Corner milepost 84.75 to Leavenworth at milepost 99 due to fire activity, with no estimated time for reopening. SR 207 and the Chumstick Highway are open as a detour for vehicles less than 26,000 lbs. Local delivery trucks over 26,000 lbs. allowed.
