COMMUNITY UPDATE - Sunday, March 27, 2011-- 11:00 am

Brief Update on Yosemite National Park

Rigorous efforts continue today to establish power and clean-up storm
debris. Power has been restored to Yosemite Valley, El Portal Maintenance,
Rancheria, the trailer park, and Old El Portal. Yosemite West and Yosemite
View Lodge are likely to get power tomorrow. PG&E has crews in Wawona and
hope to have power tonight or on Monday. Under the direction of NPS Fire
Crews, State of California Mt Bullion Fire Crews are working in El Portal.

Hodgdon Meadows is still without power, and there is no estimate when that
power will be restored.

Routes 140, 120 and 41 park roads are currently open. Route 140 is
currently open; call CALTRANS for latest update. Badger ski area will not
be open on Monday, but hopefully will be open on Tuesday.

As we stated many times during the storm events, we profoundly thank
everyone for their incredible efforts. DNC has a thank you Yosemite
Community dinner tonight at Curry Valley between 6:00-8:00 pm. DNC wans
to thank those individuals that worked tirelessly during the power outage
and storm events.

Most visitor services are open in Yosemite Valley; limited campgrounds are
scheduled to open Monday. Check the park's information line, (209)
372-0200, for up-to-date, current road conditions and chain control
restrictions.
