Southern California Fires Fueled by Winds
Strong Winds Fan Flames of Southern California Fires
Over 8,500 firefighters have made significant progress on the wildfires burning in southern California. As containment lines continue to be reinforced, many evacuations have been lifted. To date, these six fires have burned more than 175,000 acres and destroyed 793 structures.
Above normal temperatures will accompany the winds and low humidity this weekend. Another round of stronger, offshore winds is expected tonight into Sunday with east-northeast winds of 20-35mph with gusts approaching 60mh. Northern California remains dry, with above average daytime temperatures and cold nights.
You've taken steps to keep your family and home fire safe. Don't forget your pets and livestock. With some advance planning, you can increase their chances of surviving a wildland fire.
