The Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services has issued an evacuation order for residents living in the Wilton area, effective immediately. Flooding is imminent. Out of an abundance of caution, residents must leave now before roads become impassable. Rising water may spill over onto the nearest roadways and cut off access to leave the area. Last weekend, exit routes flooded quickly for residents leaving Wilton, so we are urging residents to get out now.
We are expecting high winds through the night reaching approximately 50-60 mph gusts. Power outages and downed trees are likely.
The road boundaries for the Wilton area evacuation order:
- Northbound: Jackson Rd/Hwy 16
- Eastbound: Grant Line Rd, south to Bond Rd, south to Hwy 99
- Southbound: Arno Rd, west to Alta Mesa Rd, south to Twin Cities Rd, west to Clay Station Rd
- Westbound: Clay Station Rd, north about 4 miles, then northwest to Jackson Rd/Hwy 16
Sacramento Asian Sports Foundation, 9040 High Tech Ct, Elk Grove, CA 95758. If you are evacuating pets or livestock, please call 2-1-1 before evacuating to determine the most appropriate place to take them.
Be Aware of Road Closures
If you need to drive around impacted areas, check the Waze app to ensure there are no flooded roads on your route. All roads in and out of Wilton are currently open with the exception of Dillard Road which is OUTBOUND ONLY.
