Help center for wildfire survivors opens in Santa Rosa

Wildfire in United States California state has caused destruction and loss of lives

"We're looking at $1.2 billion in damage in Santa Rosa alone".

Fire crews were starting to gain the upper hand on numerous blazes in Northern California that have killed at least 41 people and destroyed thousands of homes, but officials warned that the deadliest wildfires in the state's history were far from extinguished.

"Any sort of moisture is welcome at this point", he said. There are three hospitals in Santa Rosa; two were evacuated. These are farmers who have been hit. "Wind driven is basically powerful winds started pushing and intensifies the fire", said Captain Jimmy Bernal of the Rancho Fire District. Conditions eased somewhat Tuesday - but the National Weather Service says high winds could return to the area beginning late Wednesday night, with gusts over 50 mph.

The largest fire, at 42,000 acres and counting, is the Atlas fire spanning Napa and Solano counties south of Lake Berryessa.

Choking smoke hung thick and then drifted over the San Francisco Bay Area, where masks to filter the fumes were becoming a regular uniform and the sunsets were blood-red from the haze.

"Most of the fire is pretty much blacked out", Battalion Chief Chris Waters told crews Sunday morning as they prepared to head into the wilderness.

The NFL team trains in Napa, and long before that, in Santa Rosa, during the offseason.

As Grist's Eric Holthaus recently noted, a 2015 paper in Environmental Research Letters found that climate models predict more intense Santa Ana wind events are on the way.

The Silverado Resort escaped major damage. Temperatures are expected to drop into the mid-40s overnight, with temperatures expected to hover in the mid-80s Sunday.

Those words proved prescient as the death total rose to 21 known casualties Wednesday morning, a figure Pimlott described as "fluid" due to the number of missing or unaccounted for persons in a region savaged by a series of fires that sparked around the same time Sunday night. They stood outside watching flames creep down hillsides toward homes and vineyards on the valley floor. My wife and I are two very active and directed people, but we find ourselves sitting and staring in confusion. They must have been over 100 feet high, and they had gotten wider. It has grown from 300 acres to more than 400 acres in several hours near Oakmont, Cal Fire said. Many of those names were put on the list after people called from out of state to say they couldn't reach a friend or relative. He checked the local police scanner app on his phone and learned that wildfires blazing out of control were moving in on his four-bedroom townhouse in Southern California's Orange County.

Ninety percent of the harvest has already occurred - only late-ripening grapes like hardy cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel were left hanging.

As everyone learns when entering the wine industry, strip away the trappings and the airs often pegged to wine, and at its heart, you'll find an agrarian community. Pacific Gas and Electric Company said it expects to restore power and gas to the area by late Monday.

Meanwhile, the fires rage on. Most were less than 10 percent contained.

A concrete foundation, some rock pillars from the garage, twisted and scorched metal and roof tiles are all that remain amid powdery gray and white ash.

"All your life savings and work for all the years is gone", she said.

The atmosphere at Finley on Tuesday afternoon was busy as evacuees tried to connect with loved ones, some waiting desperately to hear whether the fires had spared their homes.

After a week, 15 wildfires are still burning across a large chunk of Northern California. Communities in Sonoma County were also under threat from the Nuns and Pocket fires, where almost 10,000 acres had burned. In Yuba County, the Cascade fire is at 11,685 acres and is 20 percent contained. The good news is more help has arrived from across the state and the country.

AT&T has deployed mobile cell sites to Santa Rosa, Willits and the Napa Town & County Fairgrounds to connect customers and emergency responders who have been without wireless service and connectivity since early Monday.
