Most Monrovians Ignore Evacuation Order


Monrovia Fire Chief Chris Donovan reports that most residents in the mandatory evacuation area have decided not to leave their homes. He said the city cannot force them to leave but strongly advises it.
 
However, those who decline to leave their homes are being asked to sign a waiver, and their addresses are being noted on a map in case rescue operations are necessary, Donovan said.

Monrovia Public Information Officer Alexis Bakofsky said there are still storm cells on the way, until about 5:30 PM,. The intensity should die down over the night, she said, but the rain may pick up again tomorrow, Saturday, at about the same intensity.
