UPDATE – From Chris Lewis who shot the video:
“Hi Kate … the warden replied. They got em. It takes a village for sure. Wish everyone could see me lighting that dummy up but I’m really just glad they caught up to them. Great timing finding all those guys at the bottom of the road this morning. [Chris found the warden and several other LEO guys at the bottom of Los Burros Rd. Yesterday morning.] And thanks for being the voice for everyone in south coast. We have to all work together .”
Warning: language is appropriate for what is happening, but some might find it offensive.
Day #3, same general area. 500-1000 acress, and San Jose State Fire Lab will be studying this one. Here is the press release:
I love this time of year, cool nights, warm days (sometimes) or foggy days, great for photos.
The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for the Big Sur Coast and Southern Monterey County In Effect Saturday morning, October 22, 2022, from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
Conditions will be very windy at the beach. Northwest winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts of 40 to 45 mph are expected. Gusty winds could blow around unsecured objects. Tree limbs could be blown down and power outages may result.
Use extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high-profile vehicle. Secure outdoor objects. Watch for debris on roadways such as downed branches or loose objects. Remain vigilant along the coast and at the beach.
When: Saturday morning, October 22, 2022, from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
Where: Southern Monterey County and the Big Sur Coast
Additional Information: Winds along the Big Sur coastline will strengthen around early afternoon. The only exception is for Northern Monterey Bay (including Santa Cruz and Watsonville) which will be shielded from the strengthening northwest flow.
