Redding is nestled at the very northwestern end of the Central Valley, which transitions into the Cascade foothills. The city is surrounded by mountains to the north, east, and west; and fertile farm land to the south. Outermost parts of the city are actually part of the Cascade foothills, whereas southern and central areas are in the Sacramento Valley.
Elevation can vary greatly in different parts of Redding, because the city is extremely spread out. Downtown Redding is 495 feet (151 m) on average, whereas anywhere to the north, east, or west of downtown ranges between 550–800 feet. Southern portions range between 400 and 500 feet (150 m). This is why outermost fringes have a better chance of snow in the winter than right in the central area.
Recovery After Clover Fire
Locals in Redding, California are waiting for an “all clear” announcement in order to salvage what is left of their lives. The Clover Fire consumed approximately 30 homes, among other 50 other structures. The already poor economy just keeps getting hit by natural disasters and it is hard for the residents to remain calm and hopeful. The fire ripped through the lives of the residents. Food banks and other resources are being depleted as the locals try to pick up the pieces that are left behind.
