October 21, 2017
2:00 p.m.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office is lifting evacuation orders in the eastern portions of Sonoma Valley.  If you live in these areas, you can return now.  There will be more law enforcement personnel in the area to keep you safe.  You do not need to check in with anyone and you do not need a law enforcement escort.  You can access your property as you normally would.  If your property suffered damage from the fire, please read the section below for important information.
Eastern Sonoma Valley:  The following roads are now open:

  • 7th Street East, which includes “The Ranch” community
  • North Castle Road
  • Half Moon Street
  • Lovall Valley Road including Lovall Valley Loop and associated side streets
  • Wood Valley Road
  • Arrowhead Mountain Road
 
If your property suffered damage from the fire, the county requires that you pick up a CPOD kit, which includes some personal protective equipment, such as masks, gloves, and goggles, along with information about how to mitigate health and safety hazards on your property.  These packets will be available at the Sonoma Police Department, located at 175 1st Street West in Sonoma, between 9am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
To see if your address is evacuated, use the online, up-to-date evacuation map for Sonoma County available at https://tinyurl.com/centrallnuevacs.
 
For additional information, call the Sonoma County Emergency Operations Center at: (707) 565-3856.
 
The County is working on resuming garbage service as soon as possible.  Some areas are without power.  If your home does not have electricity, PG&E anticipates restoring service to essentially all electric customers by late Monday.  If your home does not have gas service, please visit www.pge.com and click on "wildfire response" for a gas relight schedule or call 1-800-743-5000.
 
Conditions are subject to change at a moment’s notice. Please continue to adhere to road closures and any evacuation warnings. If you see electrical wires on the ground, stay clear and contact PG&E immediately. Trees and poles with deep charring, particularly if still smoking, should be considered hazardous. Please drive slowly and yield to emergency personnel in the area. If at any time you feel unsafe, please call 911. There will still be smoke in the respective areas as firefighters continue firefighting operations. We encourage the public to remain prepared for wildfires by visiting www.readyforwildfire.org.
 
All other mandatory evacuation areas are still closed.  We will send an alert for each area as it re-opens.
