RENO, Nev.- US 395 through Washoe Valley remains closed at this time, and may require commuters to find alternate routes throughout the morning Friday and even Saturday.
"We have so much equipment out there, power lnes are down, polls are damaged, there are spot fires and guardrail damage," said NHP trooper Dan Lopez.
There is a strong possibility that it could stay closed tomorrow as well, but there is also discussion of opening half of the road, he said, "but that's not my call."
Lopez was on his way to the command post to get an update. There will be a press conference scheduled for 9 AM and we plan on carrying it live here on air at KOLO-TV and KOLOTV.com.
