Raging wildfires devastated areas of California’s wine country, with the scenes emerging from Santa Rosa especially heartbreaking. At least 31 people had died, and more were missing in the fires. The governor declared a state of emergency in Napa, Sonoma, and Yuba counties throughout the wine-making region.

You can assess neighborhood damage through this aerial map created by the City of Santa Rosa. Be aware that the red marks indicate vegetation, not fire location, in this map.

The fire in Santa Rosa is officially known as the Tubbs Fire.

ABC 7 reports that it’s burned 20,000 acres and forced evacuations and school closings. According to the Mendocino Sheriff, Schools in the Ukiah and Willits Unified School Districts were closed on October 9.

The Weather Channel reports that another fire “near Atlas Peak in the hills above Napa led to the evacuation of hundreds of homes.” That blaze is being called the “Atlas Fire.” (CalFire says it’s burned 200 acres.)

There is yet another wildfire that is “burning near Calistoga” and also prompted evacuations “from the area of Knights Valley in Sonoma County to Tubbs Lane in Napa Valley,” the Weather Channel reported. The fires are collectively being called the Napa Fires or the North Bay Fires.

“The Napa Valley wildfires spread quickly thanks to strong north to northeast winds on the backside of what was Winter Storm Aiden, bringing snow to the Rockies,” senior weather.com meteorologist Jon Erdman said, according to the Weather Channel.

Dramatic videos were posted to social media of the scene.

I would make comment on the impact of Climate Change on places like California, but there is no mention here of the “weather conditions” that/ which may have (led) to these “bush fires”, or, whether these “bush fires” may have “direct human causes”! And simply put, I don’t believe that my comments would do “justice” to this report, in the absence of corroborating data on the “authoritative” proffered etiology of these fires!
