The California Department of Public Health has advised consumers not to eat recreationally harvested mussels, clams or whole scallops from Mendocino County. Dangerous levels of toxins have been detected in mussels from this region. The naturally occurring poisonous toxins can cause illness or death in humans, and cooking does not destroy the toxins. 

The latest from the KZYX News: 

- Calpella Elementary School bomb threat on Tuesday was cleared 

- Dams in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties are in good condition

- Recreational shellfish from Mendocino County contains toxin and should not be eaten

- The consideration of regulating edible cannabis in California

LAKE COUNTY — The Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved an Urgency Ordinance immediately closing the lake to all motorized vessels and other motorized vehicles except for the Lake County Sheriff and California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The temporary closure will remain in place for no more than 60 days or until the Board takes further action. Kayaks, paddled craft and wind-powered vessels may continue to utilize the lake.
