The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office released a 12-hour pre-evacuation notice Monday morning to residents of Seiad Valley. The release emphasized residents have time to prepare for an evacuation, as the 12-hour update is to ensure those with large animals have them moved to the Siskiyou Golden State Fair Ground and that all packing is completed and loaded into vehicles.
