SOBERANES FIRE: EVACUATION WARNING EXPANDED
An evacuation WARNING along the Pacific Coast Highway has been expanded to include an area south of Anderson Canyon effective 6 p.m. on Monday, September 5, 2016.
The new evacuation warning includes the Big Sur-Partington/South Coast Center Area and applies to all residents and businesses east of Highway 1 starting at the intersection of Highway 1 and Grimes Canyon, extending south to the intersection of Highway 1 and Dolan Canyon. This area is bounded to the east by North Coast Ridge Road and includes all residents and businesses on Dolan Ridge Road.
An evacuation warning is a precautionary notice that an evacuation order may become necessary if the threat increases.
The new warning is due to warmer, drier weather that has increased fire activity on the east side of North Coast Ridge Road.
All residents under a warning should prepare to leave the area. Be sure to take any medications, pets, important documents, and family valuables if asked to leave. Close all windows and doors before leaving.
