Pages of History: Klamath cuts new channel

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1965.

Devastation from the December 1964 flood in Del Norte County was inspected by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Col. Robert Alan, chief of the 12th district, San Francisco, assured local authorities the Corps is ready to move in immediately upon authorization and begin debris clearance.

It was found that the Klamath River has cut a new channel, making a new island just below the glen.

Three-thousand people are homeless in Del Norte County due to the floods and damage is set at $40 million, although this figure is very conservative. Gov. “Pat” Brown has said that it is “impossible” to say when roads would be opened in the Crescent City area again.

All logging and salvage operations along Del Norte’s 40 miles of coastline have also been prohibited. This notice went into effect immediately.
