If you have a CRITICAL reason to return to the area, you will need a Temporary Access Permit.

You can obtain that by clicking this link and filling out the form.

Now Closed

Returning to retrieve possessions is not a critical reason for temporary access and you will be denied.

You will receive an email back that you can show at the checkpoint to be allowed in. You will NOT be allowed in without this email.

Everyone must be back out of the evacuation order area by 19 hours (7 pm).

This is a day-by-day situation. Temporary Access passes issued today will only be valid until 19 hours on August 7. The permit process will be closed as of 18:30 Hours.
