There are two showers open at the Yurok Tribe’s Klamath headquarters. If you would like to take a hot shower, please bring your own towels and toiletries. The showers are open from 8:30am to 5pm. Over the weekend, the Yurok Tribe assembled an emergency response team comprised of representatives from each tribal department. On Sunday, tribal staff called all tribal elders in the affected areas to assess their needs and respond to exigent issues.
