MANDATORY EVACUATIONS LIFTED

As of 10:30 a.m. the Mandatory Evacuations for Modjeska Canyon, Williams Canyon and Silverado Canyon have been lifted.  Residents returning to their homes should travel with caution as roads are still slick and could contain debris.

With heavy rain in the forecast for Saturday evening, the Orange County Emergency Operations Center will continue to monitor the situation and alert residents should the rain dictate future evacuations over the weekend. Please monitor your local news and weather service reports for the current weather information and any updates concerning evacuations.

If you have questions you can call the Orange County hotline at (714) 628-7085.

If you have an emergency, please call 911.
