There were people in Costco when the Mandatory Evacuation Order was sent to cellphones as alerts.  People came running out of Costco to the Information Board, asking the Fire Personnel what was going on.  We were there at 11:30, and the Order had just been announced.  People were shocked!  Winchester Canyon all the way to the 101, Mandatory Evacuation.  Also, the parking lot across from the Sheriff Substation/Movie theater was roped off, no cars allowed in that huge lot.  Perhaps they’ll be staging there, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles.  It was BUSY.

I didn't find the map informative, especially compared with the stuff posted here on Edhat, shown on KEYT or posted on SBitZ.NET but... We were VERY happy to see the public outreach! The sincere young woman we spoke with on the way into Costco said it was just some tourist map they found and edited. When we came back out of Costco, she'd been joined by a knowledgeable woman there (USFS I think). I suggested they do a formal map showing the new evac area and she said she'd pass it along up the chain. Anyway, if anyone wants a bigger pic of the map add a comment here and I'll post it on SBitZ.NET for you.
