Title: Bodie broke
Post by: Little Hardrock on December 28, 2016, 06:55:50 PM
The earthquakes did some damage to bodie.  The park is closed until at least Sunday.  The Rangers and crew are going thru each individual building to determine the damage.   None of them fell completely down... At least that is what I was told.  But there is damage.  They need to make sure it will be safe to reopen

My fingers are crossed!

Doesn't look too bad right now, only light damage.  But a big earthquake could easily destroy what's left of Bodie.  Hope for the best as I love that Ghost Town!

update from Terri G this morning...  looks like a big whew!

Earthquake Update: Bodie Friends and Family, we are doing okay after the recent wallop of earthquakes. We have suffered some glass and brick damage and many items knocked over but overall, the buildings remain intact. The park will remain closed until every building is assessed and deemed safe. We appreciate your support and cooperation through this time as we clean up and tend to our beloved Bodie. Will keep you posted here.
