Thank you! This is good news!
So, I can drive to school tomorrow, but I can’t legally enter the property unless the evacuation order is lifted. It’s still listed as in the active evacuation zone.
Technically, Hwy 1 between Salmon Creek and Nacimiento Rd is in the evacuation zone, so how can Hwy 1 be open?
Evac area has been changed from order to warning for J & K. Tourist traffic discouraged in that warning area of Hwy 1.
