California, as you may have noticed, can be highly flammable. A few nights back we had a lightning storm, which was cool as these things go, but also very, very bad. We are now on fire. I’ll include a brief list of the major fires below.
LNU Lightning Complex: includes fires in Napa, Sonoma, and Solano counties. 46,000 acres burning. Vacaville has active evacuations going.
SCU Lightning Complex: includes fires in Santa Clara County. 85,000 acres, 1400 structures at risk.
CZU Lightning Complex: San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties. 10,000 acres burning in coastal redwoods for the most part.
The Cal Fire pages have crashed due to traffic. Here is a link to the CNN latest news feed on this.
I am about 5 miles or so from the SCU Complex Fire, but it is burning away from me. I think danger is minimal. The air quality is shit however. Apparently the smoke is blowing all the way to Texas and down into Mexico.
If fires are impacting you, or you have more information, please jump in. We’d love to know you’re ok.
