The massive Thanksgiving storm just reached Northern California and there’s already multiple road closures. One large road closure is northbound Interstate 5 in Dunsmuir, which just closed due to multiple spinouts:
EMERGENCY CLOSURE: NB I-5 is currently closed at South Dunsmuir due to multiple vehicle spin outs and winter weather conditions. CT on scene with snow removal operations. WILL UPDATE— Caltrans District 2 (@CaltransD2) November 26, 2019
The current CalTrans webcam shows traffic backed up just north of Dunsmuir, and as you can see, no northbound traffic:
Currently, I-80 is also closed near Tahoe due to 11 separate collisions:
