Fire Season 2014: Yosemite Wildfire Forces Evacuations

Fire Season 2014: Yosemite Wildfire Forces Evacuations

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (KMPH) -

A wildfire that is burning in Yosemite is now being blamed for at least 100 evacuations.

Some park visitors, including hikers, were taken out of Little Yosemite Valley near Half Dome by helicopter on Sunday.

The flames quickly grew to about 700 acres but so far, no buildings are threatened.

Right now there are 100 firefighters on site, with more on the way.

Yosemite National Park is still open as well as all facilities in Yosemite Valley and roads leading to the park.

Some trails have been closed and you can find them by clicking here.

ACA Extends Coverage for Former Foster Youth

More than 30,000 former foster youth in California are newly eligible for health care coverage, but unfortunately many of them are unaware. One of the hallmarks of the ACA is the option for young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26. Now, the ACA gives former foster youth the same protections by expanding their Medi-Cal coverage until age 26. Previously former foster youth were only eligible for health care until age 21.
 
There has been a critical need to expand health care coverage for this population as former foster youth are significantly less likely than their peers to have health insurance and often have greater health care needs due to abuse or neglect they experienced in childhood.
