My friend just told me Sherman Oaks is getting evacuated.

EDIT: probably false alarm!

This is from yesterday, so before the new 405 fire, with the largest section of smoke coming from Ventura.

Yeah, the fire at Skirball is the fourth fire, I believe. It sucks and I'm sitting here in my dumb cubicle inhaling ashes.

living near downtown and commuting to the valley using the 101, there's no widespread concern and no seeming need to even prep for an evacuation. but at the rate this is worsening with no containment, i'm not gonna lie, i feel pretty nervous!

I'm sympathetic to the fact that this is their home and people have places to be, that and I'm not really familiar with the highway infrastructure surrounding LA, but it's insane watching all these cars drive directly into the inferno.

Stay safe, LA.

hmmm....i notice that all the boarders who think forest fires “kick ass“ haven’t shown their heads in this thread yet. what’s the matter, fellas—has it gotten a little hot for you? :lol:

if that's ventura it's the 101 and the only major roadway, so there's no other choice given the 126 or the 33 are smaller highways and go inland and toward the fire/are likely closed - the 101 is mostly against the ocean or approximately so
