MEYERS, Calif. – Many Meyers residents received an automated message on Wednesday telling them they could return home.

“The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is downgrading the evacuation order to a warning for all residences in the area of Meyers that are north of the traffic circle at Highway 50 and Highway 89,“ the message states.

“This includes the area of Pioneer trail from Meyers through Elks Club, Upper and Lower Apache, Keetak, Cornelien and all residences accessed from Saw Mill on the northern edge,” the message continued.
