Official notes and details coming shortly, but after what is sure to have been quite a conversation today there has been an announcement that as of 10am tomorrow morning, the mandatory evacuation status will be lifted for most of Big Sur. Highlights of what we know right now:
- Only residents who show a Big Sur ID will be let through the Palo Colorado checkpoint.
- All residents will need to obtain a pass at the Big Sur Station (available after 10am tomorrow) to enter their ridge roads.
- The road is still closed from Julia Pfeiffer Burns to Limekiln and that area remains under mandatory evacuation.
- The evacuation status may change again at any time if fire threats change.
Full details will be up here in the next two hours.
