EMERGENCY ALERT!


Jim Weber/Santa Fe New Mexican
Status of one of the small fires feeding – now – into evacuation. This was just outside Mora 4 days ago.

I don’t know who lives the other side of the Sangre de Cristo range who might see my blog posts; but, it behooves me to repeat the warning that just dropped in onto my iphone:

MORA COUNTY HOLMAN AND CHACON immediate MANDATORY evacuation. Evacuees leaving Mora must utilize highway 434 to Angel Fire, 442 to Wagon Mound or 518 North to Taos. these roads are open for evacuation only. NO REENTRY ALLOWED. Nearest shelter is Penasco High School.If you need help evacuating call State Police 505-827-9300.

Please be safe, people.

UPDATE: Forecasters now say Wednesday will be even worse for Red Flag winds than Monday or Tuesday.
