Monterey County – Winter Weather – Re-entry, Repopulation, and Recovery Information

On 3/23/2023 Pajaro opened for re-entry. Re-entry is an opportunity to go back into the community to assess damage and start the clean-up process. At this time homes in Pajaro are not considered habitable because they do not have water or sewer utilities so it is not advised that residents say in their homes even if they do not have damage from the flooding.
