San Diego County Wild Fire Updates

New maps of the situation were posted about 2 hours ago. Our county emergency web page is a great source, but very slow, since it is very busy. I printed and photographed the map, so you don't have to wait for it to upload...

Red: Active burn areas
Orange: Fire perimeters/hotspots
Purple (looks gray): Mandatory evacuation (Fairbanks Ranch, San Marcos, Harmony Grove, Julian, Scripps-Poway, Peñasquitos, Rancho Santa Fe, parts of Escondido, Valley Center, Fallbrook, Palomar, Pauma, Jamul, Dehesa, Skyline, Sweetwater, Bonsall, parts of Oceanside, Otay, Camp Pendleton, Lake Henshaw)
Green: reopened areas

Sample scale: The distance between downtown Carlsbad and downtown Encinitas is 10 miles
Yellow roads/highways are closed.

I cannot even begin to thank you enough for these posts, for all the details, for sharing some bits of what you are going through. It is a huge relief to know exactly what you guys are up to, and it heightens my sensitivity and empathy to think about what you've said about the experience -- for all of you. I was hesitant to come back here, giving you time to get where you were going -- I didn't want to keep coming back to keep seeing the evac. post. It is also just such a huge relief to know how totally on top of the situation you are, so that you can take action if necessary. stay safe.
