wildfires again

Karen, Ben and I are all safe. My work has been “prevacuated” and it’s kinda stinky in my neighborhood, but otherwise we’re unaffected. Lots of friends have been evacuated, though, and the sheriff says it’s going to get worse before it gets better. It’s odd to have victims listed at the medical center down the street, or an evacuation center set up at the stadium a few miles away.
In related news, the Red Cross has a good idea, the online Safe and Well list. Anyone in a disaster area (!) can list their name on the site, plus where they are (evac’d, with friends…) and how to contact them.

If you’re interested in ongoing (non-TV) coverage, there are updates at the cat dirt sez blog and at the San Diego Union-Tribune’s fire blog.

Nate Ritter has been twittering with live updates and posting photos to Flickr. KPBS is updating a Google Map with fire information, too.
