New Evac Warnings

Here's the most recent info I've seen on evacuations -- North of the Patterson Curve would be towards the mountains. The Santa Barbara Independent has an informative Google Map that shows where the fire is located. With all the smoke and ash, it is hard to not feel it is right on top of us. Traffic is also heavy at this hour with people heading south for the long weekend and likely many locals playing it safe and getting away from the fire.

Effective immediately, an Evacuation Order has been issued for all residents North of Patterson Avenue (North of the Patterson curve) between Fairview Avenue and Patterson Avenues.

Evacuation Order remains for the communities of Hidden Valley and the Trout Club.

Evacuation Order remains for homes along West Camino Cielo, west of Highway 154, including Kinevan Road and the Haney Tract.

Evacuation Order remains for the Glen Annie and La Patera Canyon areas.

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

Evacuation Warning remains for residents north of Cathedral Oaks Road between
Winchester Canyon Road and Fairview Avenue. Residents in Evacuation Warning Area
should remain alert and prepared to leave if so ordered.

The link in the post below to the Wildland Residents Association is well-updated and a good source of information. The Independent has also been doing frequent updates as news comes in.
