Storms Take Toll on Olympic National Park Campgrounds

Peninsula Daily - Port Angeles,WA,USA
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK - The Heart O' The Hills campground will be closed for about a month while work continues to clear "quite a bit" of blown down trees and other debris from last week's storm, said Barb Maynes, Olympic National Park spokesperson.

The roads into the Hoh and Ozette areas are clear of downed trees and the road into the Sol Duc area is clear of trees and open as weather conditions allow, Maynes said.

The Olympic Hot Springs Road into the Elwha area of the park has re-opened and the transmission line from the Elwha Dam has been repaired, but the one to the Glines Canyon Dam still needs to be fixed, she said.

No cost estimates for the damage are available yet, Maynes said.

The Nov. 12 storm - which included 123 mph winds at Glines Canyon Dam - closed several roads in 922,000-acre Olympic National Park, including the Hoh, Sol Duc, Ozette, Olympic Hot Springs, Hurricane Ridge plus the campgrounds accessed by those roads.
