Electrical Power Restored to Yosemite National Park
Electrical power has been restored to Yosemite National Park today, March 26, 2011. The park has been without electrical power since Sunday, March 20, after a severe winter storm affected the area. The winter storm dropped several feet of new snow on Yosemite National Park over the last week causing snowy and icy conditions on the roadways, downed trees on the roadways, landslides, and damage to the electrical power lines throughout the park and surrounding communities.
