Urgent – Red Flag Warning for MoCo above 1000

It was so strange, my NOAA app sent me an alert re this, but I couldn’t find anything, and then I get this:

“URGENT – FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE…UPDATED
National Weather Service San Francisco CA
406 PM PDT Wed Oct 11 2017

…RED FLAG WARNING THROUGH THURSDAY AFTERNOON FOR ELEVATIONS
ABOVE 1000 FEET IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA AS WELL AS
ELEVATIONS ABOVE 1000 FEET ACROSS MONTEREY COUNTY AND SAN BENITO
COUNTY…”

I am at 3272.

  1. Kate, Thanks for the latest updates- hope this smoke doesn’t scare visitors away.

    Whoa- yup, huge smoke plumes coming thru mid valley and the village- Ugh!!!

    Calistoga’s entiire town now evacuated…

    KTVU is a huge winner of all the fire coverage in /Norcal, superb.

  4. Barbara,

    I doubt the PCB event mentions this Friday, but , thanks for the insight.

    Well, that will be a challenge for any other major building project in the area.

  7. Rats, KTVU/KCBA multicast cut off its connection so, no more reports for MoCo viewers until 10 pm.

  8. As always Kate, thank you for keeping the info coming. I am in northern Marin County (north of the Golden Gate Bridge) and can tell you how devastated this area is. Entire towns in ashes. Hospital burned down. Thousands of evacuees. Deaths. More than 3500 structures destroyed. But those more fortunate are pulling together and donating money and material goods and their time to help those in need. It takes a village.

  9. Thank you, Nona. I cannot provide the kind of coverage I do for MoCo and SLO Co, as I do not know the area or have the contacts, so can only provide some available online data, plus info from friends up there.

    It has been by far the worst firestorm I have seen in California in my lifetime. Oakland was bad, but this is much worse. Of the 900 people missing in Sonoma Co, about 1/2 have been located. The other half are still missing.

    This is heartbreaking.
