Yosemite To Be Closed Until At Least Monday Due To Wind, Snow

YOSEMITE (CBS13) — Yosemite National Park will remain closed through the end of the month due to the ongoing storm.

First whipping winds brought down trees last week, now heavy snow is causing branches to fall across the park, damaging cabins and trucks.

The park has received over 18 inches of snow and the storm is still going.
