The tweet put out by the Ventura Country Sheriff’s Department read, “The evacuation notice that was received by some Ventura County Residents on television was sent in error by the County of Los Angeles. There is no threat to Ventura County at this time and no need for residents to evacuate. #VCSheriff #VCOES”

How did the netizens react to the whole incident?

One user wrote, “Google is failing me. Anyone know why they’re ordering an evacuation in LA and Ventura county?” Another user tweeted, “Apparently LA County sent a wireless evacuation order that inadvertently bled into Ventura County. There is no evacuation order for Ventura County. #RouteFire”

Followed by a user who penned,”@SpecNews1SoCal @Ask_Spectrum @MeTV what was with the emergency broadcast evacuation notice for SoCal, Los Angeles, Ventura Counties about 5:37pm today that interrupted Adam-12?”

Another user added, “This appears to have been issued in error, in relation to a much more local evacuation order in Ventura County owing to a wildfire/forest fire… … but I’ll be damned if I didn’t spend the last 10 minutes looking into it and wondering if there was a massive Pacific tsunami.”

A user wrote, “Everything seems to be exploding these days. My head and this fire some 40 miles from my home in Ventura, California is no exception. Luckily the moon rocket didn’t, but who knows what’s coming next.”
