Thus far, there has been no significant damage reported in Calaveras County resulting from the storm.

"We attribute the lack of damage and clean up needed to the excellent job our road crews did over the summer cleaning ditches and brushing along the County roads," said Calaveras County Office of Emergency Services spokesperson Kelly Zahniser on Monday. "As expected with such a tremendous amount of rainfall over such a short duration we did have some minor localized flooding at various locations in Arnold-Murphys areas. In (the) Glencoe-West Point area there were a few minor tree issues and localized flooding. Valley Springs-Jenny Lind-Copperopolis experienced minor localized flooding and a few tree related issues. Lastly, San Andreas-Mountain Ranch had minor tree issues and some localized flooding."
