One day after mandatory evacuation orders were reduced in Santa Rosa, new winds have picked up the flames of the Nuns fire in Sonoma Valley and east Santa Rosa, prompting new evacuations for residents there. From the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office:
The following eastern Santa Rosa locations are now under Mandatory Evacuation:
Hwy 12 between Adobe Canyon Rd in Kenwood and Calistoga Rd in Santa Rosa. This includes both sides of Hwy 12 and any/all side roads in between.
Everybody needs to evacuate westbound on Hwy 12 to Santa Rosa immediately.
Please evacuate area immediately. Check Sheriff’s Office Facebook or Sonoma County EOC Hotline 707-565-3856.
***For anybody who needs alternate transportation, there are buses staged at Safeway at Hwy 12 / Calistoga Rd***
