Keep mmikeinsantarosa and his family in your thoughts

Their home is in the northern section of Santa Rosa, California that was devastated by the wildfires this morning. I received a PM from him about 7 am PDT--he said they were preparing to evacuate, fires were all around, and he could hear propane tanks exploding in the neighborhood. I haven't heard anything from him since, but the news photos look really bad. :frown:

This has been such a crappy year, I want it to go away. Hope they are all OK.

Just got a PM saying that his home is OK so far, though with devastation to the N, E, and S. Power has been out all day. Most neighbors evacuated, he and a few others stayed, with car packed and ready to roll at a moment's notice. His workplace is in the devasted area, though. News says at least 10 dead and 1500 buildings destroyed in the multiple fires.

So many fires at once, can't help but think of arson...

Lightning strikes too with conditions being so dry. Been reading latest news, not good for Sonoma nor Napa counties. Good to hear that Mike still has a home.

If somebody has immediate contact with him to inform him no to stay too long there, fire is very unpredictable element, people can die nearby, not from the fire itself, but the oxygen that consumes enough to choke animals and people.
I wish to overcome this bad situation himself his family and everybody that suffers it.
