City News logo

ANAHEIM, Calif. (March 21, 2018) — With heavy rain expected late Wednesday through Thursday, limited, voluntary evacuations are now in place in three specific neighborhoods east of Serrano Avenue that are directly next to hillsides burned by October’s Canyon Fire 2.

This means residents in these areas should consider leaving their homes for the night, out of an abundance of caution and for their own peace of mind during the heaviest periods of rain.

Areas in the voluntary evacuation area are:

  • Overlook Terrace from Hidden Canyon Road to the north to just south of Overlook Terrace
  • Blue Sky Road between Weir Canyon Road to the north and Silver Star Way to the south
  • Columbus Drive between Walnut Canyon Reservoir to the west and hillsides to the east, from Canyon Rim Road to the north and just before Hidden Canyon Road to the south

Find a full list of addresses as well as an interactive map showing the evacuation areas at

For those who need a place to go, East Anaheim Community Center, 8201 E. Santa Ana Canyon Road, is serving as a care and reception center during the day.

We will continue to provide updates on Facebook and Twitter and Anaheim Alert.
