Due to extreme fire behavior on the Eagle Creek Fire in the Columbia River Gorge, all lanes of Interstate 84 are closed from Troutdale (Exit 17) to 2 miles west of Hood River (MP 62).

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office has issued Level 3 (Go!) evacuations for the communities of Dodson and Warrendale. The communities of Latourell and Bridal Veil are in Level 1 (Get Ready) evacuation status. East Corbett is under a Level 2 (Be Set) evacuation and the rest of Corbett is under Level 1 (Be Ready) evacuation. The Red Cross is opening a shelter in Gresham, OR at Mount Hood Community College (26000 SE Stark Street, Gresham, OR).

The Hood River County Sheriff issued Level 3 (Go) evacuations for everything south of Interstate 84 in Cascade Locks. All prior Level 1 evacuations in Cascade Locks have been increased to Level 2 (Set) by the Hood River County Sheriff. A Red Cross Shelter has been set up at the Skamania County Fairgrounds, immediately across the Columbia River in Stevenson, Washington.

Remember: Level Three means go now; Level Two means that you should be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice; and Level One means be on alert.
