Bodega Wildfire

6:45 pm – Shaky containment. S/T forming up for this evening, but bigsurkate is taking the evening off. If you have something to report that is local, please call rather than email. Check in on all in the morning.

Highway One closed this afternoon at Bay Hill Rd. due to a wildfire. The winds have shifted, and the fire is being pushed toward Bodega Bay. Law Enforcement has been asked to prepare for a possible evacuation. Per IC fire is around 75 acres with 0% containment will go extended. Highway One is closed from the Bodega Highway to Harbour Way.

Everyone, PLEASE be very careful and very aware. RH is getting into the single digits with little recovery overnight. Fuels are already exceedingly dry, and this weather event is affecting most of the State of California.

I skipped #5. I figured we need a photo to change the pace a bit, but will be sticking with reporting for the few days.

I will be keeping a close eye on this weather event and concentrating on reporting anything of interest. NOAA is predicting temps of 108 in the inland areas of Monterey County on Monday and there are red flag alerts for LA and Ventura Co. Some of our local CALFIRE crews headed down south for staging in anticipation of the conditions.
