Skimmer Court remains closed and the evacuation order is still effect.
Residents returning to evacuated areas are reminded to:
--Report any gas or electricity issues to 800-411-SDGE.
--Use a flashlight. Do not light matches or turn on electrical switches if you suspect electrical damage or gas leaks.
--Check for gas leaks starting at the water heater. If you smell gas, get everyone out of the house; turn off the main gas valve, open windows and contact the utility company.
--If there is no power, check to make sure the main breaker is on. Fires may cause breakers to trip. If the breakers are on and power is still not present, contact the utility company.
--Inspect the roof immediately and extinguish any sparks or embers. Wildfires may have left burning embers that could re-ignite.
--Recheck for smoke and sparks throughout the home, including the attic for several hours. The winds of wildfires can blow burning embers anywhere. Keep checking your home for embers that could cause fires.
--Do not consume any food, beverages or medications that have been exposed to smoke, ash, heat, pressure, or chemicals.
Additional safety tips for residents returning to evacuation areas are available on the San Diego County Recovery website.
