Late Saturday, the Incident Management Team announced "The evacuation order is lifted for Garner Valley, south of Morris Ranch Rd. Proof of residency required. Road access is available from Highway 74 at Highway 371. All other evacuation orders remain in effect. Use caution returning home."
The Riverside County Environmental Health Department also wants to remind returning visitors of the potential danger to food in refrigerator that has lost power for more than several hours.
EHD offers the following food safety tips:
You cannot tell if food will make you sick simply by looking at it or smelling it.
Don't take chances with your family's health.
Throw out all perishable items from your refrigerator and freezer.
If your home was affected by smoke or soot, examine all non-perishable food packages and discard all that have been damaged. Wipe all canned foods prior to opening.
