Little Wenatchee Drainage,  By Michael Stanford

The situation continues to de-escalate and feels a little calmer. The cooler weather and rain these past few days have been wonderful. If they can maintain the fire line along Highway 2 and alleviate the risk of spotting, the level of risk to all of Beaver Valley will be substantially lessened.

Chelan County Emergency Management just announced that :

“Beginning Sunday evening at 8 p.m. they will start taking traffic through US 2 from Coles Corner to Leavenworth with pilot cars.”

The below reiterates our current road closures and evacuation levels:
