The Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office feels the threat level is elevated enough that an Evacuation Warning is necessary due to the predicted incoming weather event. There is a potential threat to life and/or property. Rescue or lifesaving assistance may take longer than normal, and you may need to shelter in place for an extended duration.

Residents are encouraged to plan and prepare to act immediately should an Evacuation Order be issued.

Don’t wait for an Evacuation Order to leave if you feel threatened. Individuals who require additional time to evacuate, are in need of transportation assistance and/or those with pets and livestock should begin to make plans now.

Travel on roadways in these areas could be extremely dangerous, please limit your travel to essential travel only. Do not attempt to cross flooded roadways.
