News Release
Evacuation Level for Certain Residents in Mohawk Valley Downgraded to Level 2 - 09/12/20

The evacuation level for many residents in the Mohawk Valley has been downgraded from a Level 3 (GO NOW) to a Level 2 (Be Set). The downgraded area includes the Mohawk Valley to the Linn County line with two exceptions:

  • The area west of Marcola Road south of the intersection with Hill Road is being downgraded from a Level 2 (Be Set) to a Level 1 (Be Ready).
  • The area east of the Mohawk River from Wendling Road to the county line remains at Level 3 (GO NOW), including Wending Road, Paschelke Road, Hileman Road, Bunker Hill Road and Mohawk River Road and their connecting roads.

 

The evacuation level for residents along Highway 126 from Thurston Road to the intersection of Cedar Flat Road, including Cedar Flat Road and Camp Creek Road west of Upper Camp Creek Road, is also being downgraded from a Level 3 (GO NOW) to a Level 2 (Be Set).

 

Residents should be aware that the change to Level 2 (Be Set) reflects that fire danger has only subsided in that area enough to allow residents access to the area so they can make additional preparations for their homes, livestock or other animals. They should expect that if fire behavior increases these areas may return to Level 3 (GO NOW) and residents must be able to leave again at a moment’s notice.

 

Level 2 (Be Set) means there is significant danger to your area and residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside of the affected area and be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice. Emergency responders may not have time to provide you with additional notice if danger increases.

 

Please continue to monitor cell phones, landlines, local media and lanecounty.org/mckenzie fire for evacuation updates.
