When I saw the headline I thought it was on freaking Spall Road. :-X

In fact this may be worse.

Any news if there are evac alerts yet?

Evacuation Alerts! If you know anyone on these roads and have reason to believe they may not have heard the news, let them know.

I've have never been up in that area, I have noticed signs about housing development (20+ years at least) is their many houses up in that area.
