The Enormous Scale of the California Fires

Early this afternoon I saw a Google map of southern California including the areas that are on fire right now. Here’s a satellite picture as well.

Seeing it from ground level on television doesn’t demonstrate the sheer size of the areas that are in trouble.

If any of my regulars readers are in that general area, keep us posted. I know Christine is in the vicinity, and so far has been fortunate. She has some good first-hand information about the fires at her blog and has even offered to take some people in.
