OK ... So you have been evacuated. When can you go back???
Here is the best link to see the most recent OFFICIAL information.
Once at their site, click on the most recent "Countywide Fire Map ..." This changes every 4 to 6 hours when they update.
When you open this map (save a copy to your desktop) you can see all the key information about the fires.
Read the "Map Key" to understand the color coding and symbols. This map is the OFFICIAL map of all fire information. You will see copies of this map on TV and in the newspapers.
When an "Evacuation Area" is declared safe to repopulate, the map will note it in Green. This just happened to my area in Rancho Penasquitos. So Hurray!! We are going home. And from my constant monitoring ... I know my home is safe.
These instructions will give you the best source of information, and a source you can update frequently.
