Placer County opens emergency shelter in Kings Beach

Published on January 10, 2017

With the worst of the blizzard still to come, and many people unable to travel out of the North Lake Tahoe area because of the highway closures, Placer County has opened an emergency shelter tonight at the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach, to give those in need a place to rest and keep warm.

The shelter is open now. Parking is available at the event center. Service animals will be the only pets the shelter can accommodate.

The North Tahoe Event Center is located at 8318 North Lake Boulevard in Kings Beach. Shelter coordinators can be reached at 415-648-5849.
