Folks,

 

Massive Evac orders went in this morning at 6am. If you know people that live in the area below, please ensure they are getting the message.

 

Everyone in that lives in the box bounded 

Left: east of 5

Right: west of 15

North: Del Dios Hwy

South: 56

should begin to evacuate. This is no joke. There is no break in the weather and the winds are picking up.

Shelters are being setup in MiraMesa HS, Qualcomm Stadium, and Del Mar fairgrounds... 

 

For uptodate fire info, dial 211 from a cell phone.

 News clip from 7/39 nbc is below.

With fire spreading quickly westward, San Diego County officials ordered the evacuation of a huge area east of Interstate 15 between Del Dios Highway and Highway 56 early Monday.

At a news conference shortly after 6 a.m., officials said fires had spread dramatically overnight, whipped by fierce Santa Ana winds. They said fire had jumped Interstate 15 at Lake Hodges and was burning in parts of Rancho Bernardo. Because of the explosive and unpredictable nature of the blazes, all residents living between Interstate 15 and Interstate 5 from Del Dios Highway in the north to Highway 56 in the south were told to begin evacuating. // Set DC ad position if(typeof dcadposition == 'undefined')dcadposition = 1; else dcadposition++; if (typeof segQS == 'undefined')segQS=''; if (typeof adid == 'undefined')adid='false'; // Add code to define sluser true|false var SiteLifeUser = (typeof myCookies != 'undefined' && getCookie('HD') != '')?'true':'false'; document.write(""); if ((!document.images && navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Mozilla/2.") >= 0) || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("WebTV")>= 0) { document.write(""); document.write(""); } <a href="http://ad.doubleclick.net/jump/ibs.dgo.news/national;kw=news+square+14392791;ad=true;pgtype=detail;tile=1;sz=300x250;ord=123456789?"><img src="http://ad.doubleclick.net/ad/ibs.dgo.news/national;kw=news+square+14392791;ad=true;pgtype=detail;tile=1;sz=300x250;ord=123456789?" width="300" height="250" border="0" alt=""></a> Among the communities in the evacuation area are Rancho Sante Fe, Carmel Highlands, Rancho Bernardo, Del Mar Heights, Fairbanks Ranch and parts of Rancho Penasquitos.
