my friend just texted me that she was just evacuated from malibu to santa monica

that seems a little far away although I guess it's burning towards the coast

that thomas fire is soo close to my cousins homes. i texted family this morning to say i was very far away from everything and one of them was like "no, there's a fire in san bernardino too." that one is at least fully contained now

“It looks pretty bad up there, but as of right now we have not lost any structures in the city of Ojai,” said Rudy Livingston, the city’s finance director. He said that officials have four 15-passenger vans and three vintage trolleys available to help evacuate residents.

this is just so nuts

oddest feeling how, if youre not in the affected (or have friends/loved ones who are) life continues apace and you go through your daily routine knowing large parts of your city on fire

I evacuated two days ago. Rest of my family wants to stick it out in ojai. I think they’re fucking crazy. Worst thing any of us have ever seen here and I’m surprised it’s not getting more attention.

Glad you’re safe. Do you have family or friends you’re staying with?

know one guy whose family home is gone in ventura, and another family friend's son whose farm is gone in ojai

i went to school in santa barbara and am from long beach so i drove by the area pretty frequently - it really does seem unprecedentedly bad. we had some fires while i was in santa barbara but they tended to burn los padres national forest just north of us over the mountains and so effected only the few living in those areas or occasionally a surrounding community. i don't remember anything burning that far south while i was there, certainly nothing that approached the ocean like this.

edit: got word another family friend's home is gone in ventura

san diego’s relative humidity this morning was like 5-7% across the area with huge winds

not a good mix for it not to spread
