Yosemite roads reopen after major storm

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK - The roads in Yosemite have reopened, park officials said Friday morning.

Thursday's storm forced the closure of all roads in and out of the park.

On Thursday park officials told all visitors to be out by 4 p.m. or they wouldn't get out until roads reopened.

"Additionally, campgrounds, lodging, restaurants, and facilities within Yosemite Valley are open and  fully operational," park officials said. "This reopening is possible because the Merced River crested below flood stage early this morning, resulting in no major damage to park roads or operations. All roads leading into Yosemite Valley were closed last evening at 5 p.m. due to a forecast of flood conditions with a strong storm coming into the Yosemite area."
