Looks Like A Bad One


#1

Slide show is best.


Santa Rosa and the wine country are all on fire
#2

The updated video is worth checking out, just scroll down a bit. These people need to get their act together, they only live next to the Pacific Ocean!


#4

Of course we wouldn’t have forest fires if the forest service would just burn the forests to the ground every year. FACT!


#5

I posted this thread before you posted yours. No problem, though.

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind? I think that these fires were deliberately set. If true, were they related to Columbus Day?


#6

I had that same thought, at first. Later, I’ve seen people suggesting that it was a sort of “perfect storm” of circumstances that made it happen. I am watching for more info along these lines.


#8

You can smell it all the way down here in San Jose. Over 1500 buildings are lost, looks like 10 dead (was 1 this morning)


#9

Thoughts and prayers to my ex kin folk in laws.


#10

If you continue to burn up the herbs, we gonna burn down the grape fields…

#12

rut roh

San Bruno remembers them


#13

Why does President Trump refuse to at least air drop some paper towels to these devastated communities?


#14

Maybe he doesn’t realize CA is part of the US.


#15

On the air quality scale, 0-50 is ok, 51-100 is moderate, 101-150 is unhealthy for sensitive groups, 151-200 is unhealthy, scale goes to 500. The smoke has it at 91 right now in San Jose where I am, roughly 80 miles away from the fires.

It hit 496 in Napa yesterday at one point.


#16

This is just so awful. I am surprised given the recent heavy rains up there. I thought they would have been a mitigating factor. But maybe they caused more shrub growth, that then dried out quickly?


#17

Exactly so.


#18

If that’s true, they should be sued up the ass. They also caused that explosion that killed people a few years ago.


#19

It is, and they should. But fuck the idea that it’s okay if the government fines them and let’s call it a day. I wanna see their attorneys and the insurance companies’ attorneys duke this out in court.


#20

Update, San Jose is up to 183. Again, EIGHTY MILES AWAY. My almost-85 FIL stepped outside to run an errand with my wife, and promptly went inside coughing.


#21

Neither wind nor rain etc etc etc

(too big to gif)


#22

Lack of planned fire burns caused this fire.

Ummm…Gov. Brown?
