Stay For The History

Come For The Stars,


Residents of Amargosa Valley, Beatty and Tonopah are encouraged to stock up on essential supplies such as food, water, fuel and medicines ahead of next weekend’s unknown influx of people to the region for the Storm Area 51 event.

The focus for organized events has shifted to Rachel in neighboring Lincoln County. Nye County has not permitted events for the weekend.

However, there is still concern that a large number of people may gather in Amargosa Valley. Nye County Department of Emergency Management and the Sheriff’s Office have been working with state and federal partners to assure the health and safety of residents and anyone who may visit the county.
Fire and EMS personnel from all three towns have been active in preparation for any contingency.

County Emergency Management has been operating through a Declaration of Emergency for the event since August 29, 2019. The Declaration enables the state to allocate resources to the county as needed while partnering on strategy and tactics.

Emergency Management will continue to monitor the situation through Sunday, September 22.
