Evacuation warnings for parts of Alameda County

Cal Fire issued an evacuation warning for parts of Santa Clara and Alameda counties, including Fremont, on Saturday.

The warning comes as strong winds are expected starting Sunday morning, increasing the risk that the fire from the SCU lightning complex will spread deeper into more populous communities in the Bay Area. The warning means residents should be ready to leave their homes and precedes any possible evacuation order.

The warning covers parts of Fremont east of Mission Blvd. and Mission Rd. Junction south to the junction of Mission Blvd and Curtner Rd and east of Curtner Rd. According to Fremont Police, along I-680 south to the Santa Clara County line. For the full map click here.

The National Meteorological Service has also issued a red flag warning for the entire Bay Area from Sunday 5 a.m. to Monday 5 p.m., expecting strong winds and drier thunderstorms.
