Residents Voluntarily Evacuate in Moreno Valley

A previous press release stated 32 homes in Moreno Valley were declared unsafe for occupation due to an unstable hillside. This information has been determined to be incorrect.

On December 22nd, the Moreno Valley Police Department contacted 24 to 32 home owners on Yellowbill Terrace and on Mallow Drive to advise them of an unstable hillside near their homes. Many of the residents chose to voluntarily evacuate the area. The City is not recommending that people return to their homes until the Sunnymead Ranch Homeowners Association has an opportunity to evaluate the stability of the hillside and until the City removes the debris from the streets. The City anticipates the streets to be closed on Thursday, December 23rd for debris removal. More information will be available at that time.
