Storm Damage Closes Camp Norwesca Road

CHADRON – The Dawes County Road Department has closed Camp Norwesca Road because of trees and limbs downed by high winds and severe thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and evening.

Clean up on Camp Norwesca Road, which parallels Hwy 385 starting at Chadron State Park, will begin Sunday but county officials aren’t sure how long the road will be closed because they don’t yet know the full extent of the damage.

Word of the closure went out to all phones in the Chadron area who have signed up for the Code Red notification system.
