Lyon County Opens Sandbag Locations

The Lyon County Road Department has opened sandbag locations for anyone who wants to protect their home or business. You can get them in Smith Valley at Dressler Park inside the arena on Highway 208, at the Lyon County Road Department Yard at 18 Highway 95A in Yerington, and at the Mason Town Hall on Bridge Street in Mason. County crews are already reporting flooding in fields north of the weir on the Walker River. Impacts are possible to Miller Lane, and that roadway may have shut down in the next 48 hours. Currently no homes are threatened.
