As of November 20, most of the evacuation orders in southern California have been lifted as a result of increased containment of the Woolsey Fire. The fire is currently 96% contained and has burned approximately 39,235 hectares (96,949 acres) of land.

No additional structures are believed to be threatened by the blaze, and most areas in Los Angeles and Ventura counties have been repopulated. Some communities in the Santa Monica Mountains remain under mandatory evacuation orders. Residents and visitors to the area should continue to heed all remaining evacuation orders and to seek updated information on road conditions if operating near the affected area. Individuals not under evacuation warnings should consider remaining inside well-ventilated, air-conditioned spaces to reduce exposure to smoke. Battery-powered devices should be kept charged in case of prolonged power outages.

WorldAware's ongoing updates and advice for those in the vicinity of the affected area is available on our Southern California Wildfires alert page.
