YOSEMITE, Calif. (KERO) — Yosemite National Park is back open this morning, according to our ABC affiliate in Fresno.

The park was shut down on January 19th, due to storm damage that created hazardous conditions.

According to our ABC affiliate, two weeks ago fifteen Giant Sequoias were knocked down, and several feet of snow blocked roads.

The lodging inside the park is scheduled to reopen until Friday, and day-use passes will be required starting next Monday.

The entrance through Highway 140 is the only way into the park currently open.
