All Ramona residents are urged to boil water or to avoid using tap water altogether. A flashing sign on the northbound 67 Freeway this morning warns residents.

“The Ramona Water District is on a boil order because of all the ash in the area,” said Rochelle Jenkins, spokeswoman for the state office of Emergency Services. “It’s a safety precaution.”

The order has been in effect since Thursday afternoon. Residents in Lake Arrowhead and Running Springs are also urged to take precautions.
