Nice map Mendo, I guess the County Line is where your ‘no f’s given’ begin. Grow up south child, you have family that cares.
It’s really incredible how they held that fire line at the county border perfectly! smh

Yes, it is MENDOCINO COUNTY that refuses to share information with its neighboring counties in the middle of a wildfire disaster that spans across all three counties. Mendo demanding that Humboldt remove information from its maps then not including it in their own is childish and petty. The information is supposed to help people decide when and where to evacuate to. Without the big picture it might lead someone to make a deadly mistake

Mendocino County officials are not deliberately withholding information that could help some save their lives, and many others make important decisions during a time of crisis. That’s a preposterous and unfounded statement. The unfortunate truth is that there is a chronic ineptitude amongst the higher ups, and they simply cannot be expected to rise to the standards we take for granted elsewhere. I like the gis program in lake county. It’s a full feature customizable map platform that lends itself well to be an invaluable tool during times like these. Images are updated hourly from satellites and people can see for themselves. Mendocino has a peanut gallery overwhelmed with input they can’t process…. Eg. Aunt Claire would like to know if her pets are ok. But she can’t find any info because the peanut gallery wants to see proof of a fire, and send a team to verify that what once was, is no longer. Well. It’s hot in there so the team’s gonna have to wait til the flames recede to investigate. Then these peanuts gather every so often to chat and debate what info is ok to share before authorizing someone to release any information. Lake has a… Read more »

My God the fire looks angry today….here’s hoping fire fighters can get this put out before anymore structures or lives are taken….I have lived here my entire life and know Mendocino well as lived in Ukiah when a teenager and traveled back and forth to the coast during summers for cooler weather and Mendocino fun…. I am so sad we are experiencing these fires and the smoke here on the coast now for days upon days….Please rain come soon….Bless all the firefighters out there working hard in harms way…

There doesn’t look to be much rain making it that far south but even if there isn’t more than scattered showers this should occur……..from NWS.

“Temperatures will be significantly cooler and RH will be much higher even in areas that receive little to no rain”.

That alone will give FFs a chance to regroup and hopefully attack head on, with a good chunk of containment realized. And it’s important to make as much progress as possible during that window as this is coming…..

“Next weekend high pressure is expected to start building back into the area north to northeast winds are expected once again”.

So keep thy fingers crossed.

Gavin Newsom who in my opinion is one of the crookedest ppl on planet earth went on t.v. yesterday saying this is proof of climate change, lol. They caught several arsonists in Oregon who set the fires there and the Covelo fire was arson and the fire up in Hoopa way was a women who was having a gender revealing party using pyrotechnics in a dry field. The fires everywhere else was lightning or arson as well. Our other problem was we have had no forest management because the liberals are not intelligent enough to know how to manage a forest properly and so it makes for hazardous and disastrous conditions. These conditions have lead to the biggest lost of wildlife, lives and property damage ever in California history. I beg all people to please study the 26,000 year sun cycle that we are currently in. The Mayans kept the calendar of this cycle and the end of the calendar was a very angry sun. Most people beLIEve this cycle began in 2012 which is not true but because of the Gregorian time keeping 2012 as we know it was not actually the proper date because the Gregorian calendar is… Read more »

You have swallowed and apparently digested a host of the right-wing conspiracy theories being generated from the White House down through Infowars. A little knowledge is a very dangerous thing in this era of social media, but fortunately most Mendo residents have the wisdom to eject your BS.

Sorry no politics for me Don. Right wing and left wing is all the same bird. Politics are for people who gave their power away to corporate interests. I just study and find the scientific proof that explains the situation. Its the logical thing to do. I am also not a fan of Alex Jones so you can make ASSumptions all day long and I will stick to the real truth that you find when you actually read and study information and use critical thinking skills. The truth has become a “conspiracy theory” for those who are too programed to find it. As for Gavin Newsom……he is bought and payed for by corrupt people so how could one beLIEve he has anyones best interests in mind. He is the one who said on t.v. “the fires are proof of climate change” when I have proven above they are mostly arson and lightning. He is obviously lying to support an agenda and if you think differently then your ok with lying, deceiving and manipulating. I, myself am not ok with it. All these liars need to be held accountable because the people are suffering and I for one am tired of… Read more »

I rarely watch the MSM newtheatre, but caught the NBC piece on west coast fires with one that ended with him being interviewed and being articulate, and then his energy shifted when he went to the talking point “the fires are proof of climate change”. He went full used car salesman, in my opinion.

Sorry Kym, Not true at all tho. I have studied this intensely but nice try. Keep selling a green future and lies and I’ll stick to 2,000 yrs of native teachings and time keeping as well as scientific proven facts of the sun cycle.

Plus every single thing you ever say is just a regurgitated statement from some yo-yo liberal article. I do ALL my thinking and ALL my research myself by reading real books from real scientists and going to REAL seminars. Thanks for all pipping in with useless information tho. It says alot about who you are and what your about.

WOW, Thank You Guest!!! Great links and information. I am not one to ever write in but you hit the nail on the head here buddy. They have been trying to sell us these lies long enough and now look at the disaster we are in. I worked for Tesla for two yrs and you are not kidding about Lithium batteries. Those are far more dangerous to our planet then almost anything besides nuclear power. I would like to add that now with all the electrical outages and the disaster of PG&E mismanagement and the new electric charging stations going up everywhere how will the fools who own electrical cars charge them. This is a huge disaster and I also believe it is orchestrated by some obviously sick individuals. Elon Musk is about tricking ignorant people and subjecting workers to cancerous conditions by exposing them to elements such as Lithium. We need some great minds to get us out of this mess and show the people they have been bamboozled and tricked by these folks who want to sell us a “Green future”, when in reality they are the very ones doing the polluting and making fortunes off peoples ignorance.… Read more »
