Some evacuation orders lifted in Valley

The latest from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office:

At 6 p.m.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office is lifting all evacuation orders in the following areas. If you live in these areas, you can return home now. There will be more law enforcement personnel in your neighborhood to keep you safe. You do not need to check in with anyone and you do not need a law enforcement escort.

In and near City of Sonoma: All of City of Sonoma and county areas north of East Napa Street to the burn area, including the areas north of Napa Street to the burn area; west from 4th Street East and Gehricke Road to Highway 12, including Norbomm Road and associated side roads to the burn area and Gehricke Road. Access your neighborhood as you normally would.

Bennett Valley and Annadel Heights: Within City of Santa Rosa city limits. Access your neighborhood as you normally would.

For additional information, specific to Sonoma County, call the Emergency Operations Center at: (707) 565-3856.

To see if your address is evacuated, use the online, up-to-date evacuation map for Sonoma County available at https://tinyurl.com/centrallnuevacs.

Some areas are without power. If your home does not have electricity, PG&E anticipates restoring service to essentially all electric customers by late Monday. If your home does not have gas service, please visit www.pge.com and click on "wildfire response" for a gas relight schedule or call 1-800-743-5000.

Conditions are subject to change at a moment’s notice. Please continue to adhere to road closures and any evacuation warnings. If you see electrical wires on the ground, stay clear and contact PG&E immediately. Trees and poles with deep charring, particularly if still smoking, should be considered hazardous. Please drive slowly and yield to emergency personnel in the area. If at any time you feel unsafe, please call 911. There will still be smoke in the respective areas as firefighters continue firefighting operations. We encourage the public to remain prepared for wildfires by visiting www.readyforwildfire.org.

All other mandatory evacuation areas are still closed. We will send an alert for each area as it re-opens.
