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.

River Inn Pig Roast for Big Sur Locals

Hello Big Sur community! We would like to invite you to a gathering of the locals at the Big Sur River Inn. We hope that you will join us on Tuesday, November 22nd for a pig roast and a chance to come together for some relaxation and recuperation from a challenging summer. This event is an open invitation to our staff and our community-and a wonderful chance for some good ol’ Big Surian camaraderie.

This is a sweet opportunity, and I wish I could go, but I need to be home before sunset to take care of the dogs – and I’d have to leave River Inn about the time this starts to get home – the sun sets so friggin’ early this time of year!! I’ll be there in spirit.

Another mudslide

9:30 am – another slide, this one near River Inn. Only blocking 1/2 a lane, so not closing road. Should be able to get clear in no time, but considering that we have more rain on the way for the next two days, could be a precursor of things to come. Please be safe out there!
