    Voluntary evacuations of people and animals turned to mandatory evacuations today as the Orange County Canyons impacted by last month's Santiago Fire braced for a huge winter storm. Yesterday the National Weather Service issued Flash Flood warnings for Orange County begining Thursday evening. If you have questions call the Orange County Information hotline at 714-628-7085.

    Mandatory evacuation of people and large animals was ordered at 11:00 am for Modjeska, Silverado and Williams Canyons. Residents will have access to their homes to retrieve necessary items and pets until approximately 8:00 p.m. At 8:00 p.m. access to the Canyons will be restricted. Residents will not be forced to leave their homes, however, anyone choosing not to evacuate does so at their own risk.

    The Orange County Fairgrounds has been designated as a reception area for evacuated large animals. The Orange County Fairgrounds has the capacity for up to 100 head of livestock. Residents who need to evacuate large animals and livestock are directed to go to Gate 5 at the Orange County Fairgrounds. Livestock, other than horses, will also be sheltered at Orange High School, 525 N. Shaffer St., Orange. General information about Orange County Animal Care Services is available on their website at www.ocpetinfo.com or by calling (714) 935-6848.

    An evacuation center has been set up at El Modena High School, located at 3920 East Spring Street in Orange.

    Mandatory evacuations for residents of Modjeska, Silverado and Williams Canyons will take effect at 5:00 pm.
