New evacuation shelter in southwest Riverside County
Winchester, Riverside County:
Riverside County has opened the Lake Skinner Recreation Area as a temporary evacuation site for people who have fled the wildfires in motor homes or pulling campers or tent trailers. Authorities are hoping these people will move off the streets, where they have been parking since they were ordered to leave.
More than 300 sites are available, some with water, sewer and electricity; some with water and electric; some with water only; and some suited only for dry camping. Food will not be available at the facility, and there are limited numbers of showers.
Evacuees may enter the Lake Skinner area at any hour while the facility is being used as a temporary shelter. The address is 37001 Warren Road in Winchester.
