Evacuation orders have been issued for neighborhoods with a high risk of flooding during tonight’s storm. 

If your residence is in this map's red area, you are asked to evacuate NOW. Choosing not to evacuate puts you and your family at risk and will delay rescue operations.

Watsonville Veterans Memorial Building (Opens 4PM)

215 E. Beach Street, Watsonville

Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds (opens at 7PM)

2601 E Lake Ave, Watsonville
