LAKE ELSINORE - The County of Riverside said on Sunday, Jan. 13 that because of storms predicted for the Holy Fire burn area in the afternoon of Monday, Jan. 14, a voluntary evacuation warning has been issued for residents in the Amorose, Alberhill, Glen Ivy A, Glen Ivy B, Glen Eden, Grace, Horsethief A, Laguna A, Maitri, McVicker A, Rice and Withrow A zones.

According to the country, people in these zones "should go now," because it is the safest time to leave. Rainstorms carry the potential for dangerous debris flows that can send mud, boulders, and trees crashing down hillsides.

The county said it is critical that residents look online at http://www.RivCoReady.org/StormReady and scroll down to the zone maps to determine the zone in which they live and the status of that zone. Residents in the Holy burn area should verify the zone where they live because some boundaries have changed since previous evacuation warnings.

A care and reception center is open at Temescal Canyon High School, 28755 El Toro Road in Lake Elsinore. Small animals are being accepted at the San Jacinto Animal Campus, located at 581 S. Grand Ave. in San Jacinto. Residents who need to evacuate large animals should contact Riverside County Animal Services at (951) 358-7387.

Residents with RVs/ Motorhomes are being provided free hookups at Lake Skinner Recreation Area, 37701 Warren Road in Winchester and Rancho Jurupa Regional Park, 4800 Crestmore Road in Jurupa Valley.
