Effective immediately,  due to unsafe conditions, the department of public works  for  the county of santa cruz has closed Soquel-San Jose Road (South Of Amaya Ridge Road And North Of Olson Road).    County geologists have recommended closure of the road due  to an unstable road bed at mile-marker  5.9.     The county will conduct additional analysis before designing a repair plan.  There is  currently no plan to immediately reopen Soquel-San Jose Road.     There are no available detours around the impacted area.    Highland Way also  remains closed between pm 3.06 and Spanish Ranch Road due to an earlier mudslide.

2  kayakers  were  rescued  off  the  coast  of  Santa Cruz  today.   Members  of  the  Santa  Cruz  Harbor  Patrol, rescued  the  people  in  the  harbor  mouth  after  their  kayak  overturned.

5  people  were  arrested  in  Monterey  last  night.     That  after  they  allegedly  robbed  a  Fremont  Boulevard  gas  station  at  gunpoint.       25  year-old  Raul  Lopez22  year-old  Ismael  Valenzuala,  and  19  year-old  Brandon  Escobar  were  booked  into  Monterey  County  Jail,  while  2  juveniles  were  transported  to  Monterey  County  Juvenile  Hall.

A  24  year-old  man  is  in  critical  condition  at  an  area  trauma  center,   after  he  was  shot  last  night  in  King  City.       The  shooting  reportedly  took  place  on  the  100  block  of  Division  Street.      Anyone  with  any  information  about  the  incident  is  encouraged  to  contact  the  King  City  Police  Department

A  200-foot  landslide  yesterday  is  thought  to  have  exposed  the  underside  of  the  right  lane  of  northbound  Highway  17.     C.H.P.  has  posted  a  SIG  alert  in  the  area  of  Laurel Road,  and  cal-trans  has  reportedly  closed  the  northbound  slow  lane  through  that  area.

Due  to the  damage  caused  by  the  storms  in  the  first  few  weeks  of  January,  California  Governor  Jerry  Brown  has  asked  the  Federal  Emergency  Management  Agency  to  declare  a  major  disaster.      That’s  so  that  the  state  can  get  federal  funds  to  make  some  much  needed  repairs  in  the  areas  damaged  by  those  storms.  Governor Brown  estimates  that  the  public  clean-up  will  cost  more  than  162  million  dollars.   He  is  not  the  only  state  official  who  has  been  in  touch  with  FEMA.    Local  Congresswoman  Anna  Eshoo  also  told  FEMA  last  month  that  the  counties  of  Santa  CruzSanta  Clara,   and  San  Mateo  have  suffered  significant  storm  damage.
