West Point, CA – An evacuation warning has been issued for about 34 homes in the West Point area due to a potential debris slide.

Calaveras County Sheriff’s officials report that they are located in the Middle Fork of the Mokelumne River area. They added that residents in the area of Barney Way near Railroad Flat Road and off Highway 26 should be prepared for a possible evacuation order. Although sheriff’s officials stressed that it is only a warning at this time, this means that residents should be prepared to leave their homes if an evacuation is ordered in the future.
