Update, Oct. 16: Cal Fire now has a map displaying evacuation orders in Sonoma County. If residents are uncertain whether they should evacuate, they can enter their address here and clear up the ambiguity once and for all.

Update Oct. 13: As fires continue to spread, evacuation orders and warnings are in place for even more North Bay communities. Unsure about your evacuation status? Text your ZIP code to 888777 to receive updates.

Do not ignore evacuation orders, even if you don’t believe that you are in danger. The National Weather Service has fire warnings in place for almost all of the Bay Area Thursday and cautions that with wind gusts forecast up to 50 mph fires can spread quickly and unpredictably.

According to the state’s Office of Emergency Services, this is the most comprehensive list of evacuation centers for each of the following California counties:

Sonoma County:

Napa County:

Marin County:

Solano County:

  • Allan Witt Center, 1741 West Texas St., Fairfield

Mendocino County:

Lake County:

​Amador County:

Butte County:

Calaveras County:

Nevada County:


With multiple fires spreading across Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino counties and more than 1,500 structures burned, Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency today. Some 20,000 people had already evacuated by this morning.

Cal Fire reports via Facebook that a fire in Mendocino County is now at 10,000 acres. A fire in Oroville (Butte County) is 7,500 acres. A Sonoma County blaze is at 5,000 acres, and fires off Atlas Peak Road and Bennett Lane in Napa County is at 25,000 acres, all just in the last hour.

Here’s a map of the firestorm in its entirety.

Marin County Highway Patrol says that residents should “text your zip code to 888777” to receive “information such as evacuation orders, emergency shelter locations, and road closures.”
