According to Lake County OES, currently an evacuation is recommended, but not required at this time. They encourage anyone who is able to evacuate to do so now. On their facebook page they posted: “We are inviting everyone to take preparations in the likely event a mandatory evacuation order is issued. Preparations should include gathering all medications, important documents, making plans for pets, and notifying family members where you may be going. During a mandatory evacuation, it will be extremely hectic and traffic conditions will be very congested. By evacuating early, you do your part in keeping yourself, your neighbors, and our first responders safe.”
In the event of a mandatory evacuation, emergency shelters will be designated and identified.
