One Year Anniversary of Snowfall in Humboldt County

Humboldt County, Ca. (KIEM) — The North Coast has seen some sunshine lately, but one year ago, residents were seeing snow.

Last February, the community woke up to snow. It was the first measurable snowfall seen in Eureka in last 17 years, according to the national weather service. Many places saw about half an inch of snow. McKinleyville saw the most with 6 inches. The snow did stick to the ground, but most of it had melted away by the following morning.

Redwood news spoke with one Humboldt County resident, Ceasar Villa, who remembers how shocked he was when he looked out the window. He also recalled how surreal it was to see the roads empty and covered in snow.
