Highway 1 closure tonight at 8 pm & evacuation warnings

Due to weather forecasts showing rainfall amounts likely to meet thresholds for increased risk of debris flow activity, the County of Monterey is issuing an evacuation warning for the Dolan Burn Scar and areas of River Road in Salinas, CA. Properties and people located below or downstream of the burn areas are at an increased risk for flooding and debris flows. Areas that have experienced increased runoff, flooding, debris, and/or mudflows since the fires in August 2020 will likely experience similar or worsened impacts. Please remain vigilant and be aware of any land movement. If weather patterns change or land movement occurs, additional evacuation warnings or orders may be issued. If you are concerned about your safety or feel that your life is threatened, leave the area; do not wait for officials to tell you to do so. Note: Highway 1 will be closed at Deetjen’s Big Sur Resort (Postmile 42.1) and Ragged Point beginning 12/12/21 at 08:00pm.
