In consultation with fire officials, today it was determined that current fire conditions allow for changes in evacuation status in East Multnomah County. Below is a list of the new evacuation orders which will reduce evacuation levels in some neighborhoods. These will be in effect as of noon today. See an interactive map of the updated evacuation zones.
Level 3 (Go!) evacuation orders are in effect in the areas of:
East Historic Columbia River Highway: East of Alex Barr Road, addresses in the 43800 block and higher
Larch Mountain Road: East of Brower Road, addresses in the 45800 block and higher
All of Brower Road, including Toll Road
E Haines Road: addresses in the 43800 block and higher
Level 2 (Be Set) evacuation orders are in effect in the areas of:
Larch Mountain Road: West of Brower Road, addresses in the 45700 block and lower, including Salzman Road and Alder Meadows Road
E Haines Road: addresses in the 43700 block and lower (towards Larch Mountain Road)
Troutdale: addresses East of the Sandy River
Level 1 (Get Ready) evacuation notices have been lifted for all areas of Troutdale West of the Sandy River. There are no communities currently in a Level 1 evacuation.
** Residents downgraded from a Level 3 to a Level 2 evacuation order are asked to report to a Re-Entry Center located at Corbett Community Church, 34309 NE Mershon Road, Corbett OR 97019 with identification to receive credentials for re-entry. Because residents moving from a Level 3 to a Level 2 are still asked to Be Set, we are requesting that only household pets return with their owners, and that large livestock and horses remain out of these areas until evacuation orders are lifted.
The Sheriff’s Office understands the importance of getting our residents back into their homes and neighborhoods as quickly as possible. Over the coming days, we will continue to work with fire officials to examine possible re-entry into additional portions of the remaining Level 3 communities. For those residents still under a Level 3 evacuation notice, thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
