Tents flying and plants breaking, it’s been a wild and windy afternoon especially on the ridgetops of Humboldt County. The National Weather Service out of Eureka has issued a red flag warning as well as a hazardous seas warning.
“The combination of gusty winds and dry fuels will be conducive to rapid fire growth and extreme fire behavior,” they warn.
To the left is a graphic posted by the National Weather Service on their Facebook page showing the direction and speed of the winds.
Gusts up to 50 mph are possible around 200 feet until tomorrow morning.
