HEARST CASTLE APPARENTLY UNDAMAGED

HEARST CASTLE APPARENTLY UNDAMAGED:

Hearst Castle reported no obvious damage and no injuries, said Roy Stearns, spokesman for the state Department of Parks and Recreation. A crew was to go over its 150 rooms in detail; the only damage found immediately was a blown transformer at a campground, Stearns said.

The castle is particularly popular this time of year because it is decorated with the Hearst Christmas ornaments.

“People come from far and wide to see that, because it’s pretty spectacular,” Stearns said.
