My daughter lives just north of the 'R' in the word "Lower Lake" on the map above. The apartment complex is one block north of the border of Lower Lake town limit.
At 11 am this advisory was posted on the local news.
"The Lake County Sheriff’s Office has issued a mandatory evacuation order for the Jerusalem Valley area east of Soda Creek.
Jerusalem Valley Road is closed to all traffic at Spruce Grove Road. Fire personnel and emergency vehicles will be working in the area.
An evacuation advisory is in effect for the area of Spruce Grove Road, Noble Ranch Road, Black Bass Pass and the Jerusalem Valley area west of Soda Creek.
At this time mandatory evacuations are still in effect for Bonham Road, Quarter Horse Lane, Mustang Court, Bronco Court, Sunset Court and Morgan Valley Road east of Bonham Road.
Residents are encouraged to stay out of affected areas due to fire personnel and emergency equipment in working in the area."
