Corrected Evac Orders (07/04/08)

This will be a Fourth of July we will never forget -- the evacuation orders from last night have been changed slightly since my post last night. -- Sara

Santa Barbara County Emergency Management Officials are providing this updated information to help clarify the geographic boundaries for the series of Evacuation Orders and Warnings issued by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff and Fire authorities due to changing conditions of the Gap Fire.

About 1,700 homes spread throughout the following areas or communities are under mandatory EVACUATION ORDERS:

Painted Cave, Hidden Valley and the Trout Club

West Camino Cielo, west of Highway 154, Kinevan Road and the Haney Tract.

Glen Annie and La Patera Canyons

From Glen Annie Road going east to just west of, but not including, San Marcos Road, north of Cathedral Oaks Road.

EVACUATION WARNING is in effect for about 250 homes north of Cathedral Oaks Road from Winchester Canyon Road to Glen Annie Road

An American Red Cross Evacuation Center has been established at San Marcos High School at 4750 Hollister Avenue at the intersection of Turnpike Road and Hollister Avenue.

As a reminder, an Evacuation Order means residents are being directed to leave their homes immediately. An Evacuation Warning means residents should be prepared to leave immediately if their area is upgraded to an Order.

Sara, thanks for posting the evac orders and warnings. Could you put a time/date stamp (for example, 4:15 p.m. on July 4) in the header. We're seeing some pretty rapid changes, especially when the sundowners start.
