So far I still have power. The winds are tremendous so I expect the power will go out at any time.The power is out right now in many parts of Sacramento.  Right now I am more worried for me than the bees. There are branches coming down and hitting the sides of my house and I have a house that is mostly windows.

Thinking positive thoughts and staying upbeat, so far.

Power is out for me. My neighbor had a tree crash through her fence from the winds and part of my fence in the back fell over. Luckily my hives have windbrakes around them, but I think they are dead anyways. Cry

The winds have died down now. Just rain. I think the worst is over. Many outages around here, but I remained with electricity and did not notice any damage.

I am sorry for the people without power and lots of damage.

Casimir, why do you think your bees are dead???

Brian,
Did you lose any of the hives that went over? Good luck, wishing the best for all of you out west.

A million people without power in northern California and now interstate 80 is closed. Luckily I got power back a few hours ago (my previous post was done at a friends house.)
Annette, I believe that my bees are dead because both of my colonies populations have declined dramatically recently and I fear that the are both dead. I will have to check them after the storm. Here is a link when I asked for help when one colony suddenly declined.

I was truly lucky. Hardly any damage beyond downed branches. Power remained on throughout, although much of Placerville was without. My home sits in a sort of valley with mountains around and I believe that is why I did not get hit that hard.

The bees are in a different place on top of a high knoll where they had much damage to trees. They are, of course, fine.

Hope all is well for everyone.

No damage to my hive or bees, had a few limbs down but nothing near the bees.  The next one is supposed to be here this afternoon, less wind more rain.

I am not in an area like that. That is several miles up the road where they always have mud slides.

Thanks for asking

Sorry I am late in responding. It looks like you have gotten some good advice. I will say that for hurricanes I use aircraft cables and soil anchors. I then bolt the cables to the ground anchors and the hives. I use plumbing straps and wrap that around the hives. My hives are pretty secure that way.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

I saw how you did this on some photos you posted. I just did not know if I had to go that far in protecting them.

Thanks for the good wishes
