The Monterey County Sheriff's Office issued an evacuation warning on Wednesday for areas of the Big Sur community, south of the Highway 1 Rocky Creek slip-out to the Dolan Slide ahead of showers and thunderstorms forecast to come in Thursday.

Residents may evacuate via Highway 1 to the north during the last convoy at 4 p.m. on Wednesday before a full road closure at the Rocky Creek slip-out, according to a release from the County of Monterey.

Officials are anticipating storms to cause additional damage along California's Highway 1, and the road is expected to be closed for several days.

“If you feel unsafe, medically fragile, or are unprepared to be isolated for several days, leave immediately,” said the release.

According to the release, emergency medical services may be unable to evacuate patients.
