A severe winter storm delivering rain and snow is expected to move into our region the week of March 6th - 12th.  As a proactive measure, the Fresno County Sheriff's is issuing evacuation warnings to its residents living in the foothills and mountains.
A real-time Evacuation Zones Map is available for residents to enter an address to see the current instructions for an area. These areas are listed under three headings: Evacuate (red), warning (yellow) and no evacuation (green).

During a warning, residents are encouraged to begin gathering belongings and be prepared for an evacuation order.
If you are ordered to evacuate, follow these guidelines.
