Since it seems like life is now just time between the last disaster and the next one to come, on today’s show, we’ll hear from the Red Cross letting us know what we can all do to prepare for the next disaster. We’ll also hear how the absence of an iconic Northern California music festival is affecting the local life there.

Would you be prepared in the event of a disaster?

Ken Devol reached out to Nurridin Ziyadinov, executive director of the Red Cross’s Northern California Chapter to find out what the Red Cross does, and what the Red Cross recommends regular people do, to prepare for the unexpected. 

Ken started off by asking, after a disaster like a wildfire where people need to be evacuated, how does the Red Cross pick an evacuation site?

County of Glenn

No area of the North State has been hit harder than Glenn County. With officially 122 cases among just more than 28,000 residents, the proportion of people infected is considerably higher than elsewhere. 

Last week, all bars were ordered closed and restaurants were forced to switch back to delivery, or pick up only. For more, NSPR’s Marc Albert reached out to Amy Travis, deputy director of the county’s Office of Emergency Services.

Sutter County has consistently been afflicted with among the highest caseloads in the region. Together with Yuba County, the two are mainly agricultural, with a few growing Capital region bedroom communities. The number of cases in both — 380 — is raising concerns among public health professionals. Like elsewhere in the North State, compliance with mask and social distancing guidelines is far from universal. 

To learn more about current trends and where this may lead, NSPR’s Marc Albert spoke Monday with Russ Brown, spokesman for Yuba and Sutter counties.
