Voluntary Evacuation Notice

A voluntary evacuation order has been issued for the area in Big Sur from Fernwood to River Ridge. This is a precaution due to concerns about the potential for the Big Sur River to overflow. If you are in this area, Monterey County Sheriff’s deputies will contact you.
The River Inn has offered accommodations for those who want to voluntarily evacuate.

I am only guessing, but by “River Ridge” I believe they may mean “bridge” in referencing the bridge to Clear Ridge, as RI accommodations are on the east side, not near the river.

  1. The reverse 911 call and email says fernwood to river inn


  2. Okay, that means the “River Ridge” is the Bridge to Clear Ridge. Thanks for the clarification.

  4. Nah, I think I’ll stay put in the 2 story bldg. Plus, the river hasn’t come up like it did in 98. I jus looked at it & it’s still about 6 ft from top of riverbank itself. And it’s raging fast. Very fast. And no evac orders were given to neither Adonna or myself.
