Mandatory Evacuation area lifted for Residents from eastern city limit to Webb Way

The lifting of the mandatory evacuation that was issued for the entire City of Malibu since Friday, November 9, due to the Woolsey Fire has been expanded today to include residences from the eastern city limit to Webb Way.


The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) announced the repopulation of the following areas impacted by the WoolseyFire effective Wednesday, November 14, 2018, at 2:00 p.m.


The following areas inside of the City of Malibu will be opened to residents only:


  *   Pacific Coast Highway from Carbon Canyon Road (east) to Webb Way (west)

  *   From the ocean to the northern City limit

  *   Neighborhoods of Serra Retreat and Sweetwater Mesa

  *   IMPORTANT EXCEPTION: The Malibu Colony neighborhood and Civic Center area will remain closed


Please note, LASD personnel will be moving the checkpoint from Pacific Coast Highway and Coastline Road to Pacific Coast Highway and Carbon Canyon Road in the City of Malibu. Only RESIDENTS of the repopulated areas west of Carbon Canyon Road in the City of Malibu will be permitted to enter this area.


The area west of Webb Way will remain under a full mandatory evacuation order and those residents will not be allowed entry at the closures. Business employees are also not yet receiving entry to the city.


Residents will be required to show a driver’s license or other official photo ID with their name and address within the zone where the evacuation order was lifted. If the photo ID shows a different address, additional documentation in the resident’s name and Malibu address, such as a passport, car registration or utility bill, must be presented with the photo ID.


Los Angeles County Waterworks District No. 29, Southern California Edison, and the Gas Company have confirmed that all the released addresses have water, electricity, and gas service. However, residents should be aware that water service is limited, water pressure is low, and intermittent, temporary power outages continue throughout Malibu.
