Subject: RE: Wildfire at California's Camp New Harmony Oct 2017
It's two weeks today since the devastating wildfires began here in Sonoma County. 100ft tall walls of flame, driven by 70mph winds, destroyed about 8,000 homes and businesses and took almost 40 lives. They came within a couple of miles of where I live in downtown Santa Rosa and are still not all 100% contained. Bay Area air quality was worse than Beijing's for a few days. I've never seen anything like it and I hope I won't again, but this is the new normal. Climate change is here, and it's deadly.
