Evacuation order lifted for Mount Charleston, Echo Canyon

The voluntary evacuation order has been lifted for the Echo Canyon area of Mount Charleston. The area is still under an avalanche advisory as residents are being asked to be careful of snow sliding off their roofs and not to engage in outdoor activities, said Dan Kulin, a spokesman for Clark County.

There are still about 300 homes in the Echo and Kyle Canyon area that are without power, said Mark Severts, a spokesman for Nevada Energy. Crews are working today and Christmas Day to restore power lines.
