Raging California wildfires force mass evacuation, Ontario airport closed

California is in a critical condition with land-to-sea Santa Ana winds fanning the wildfires, making it a “Particularly Dangerous Situation” (PDS). (With low humidity, Santa Ana creates dangerous weather conditions). Evacuation is on in southern California. Ontario airport had to be shut down due to severe crosswinds, Monday evening.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 27: Wildfires are spreading fast in southern California, fanned by strong land-to-sea winds. Over a lakh of people are being evacuated from Orange county. The entire State is in a critical condition. Nearly a million people went without power as the supply lines were cut off by authorities to prevent the risk of igniting more blazes by sparks from the lines.

Silverado in Irvine, Blue Ridge in Yorba Linda and the Chino Hills are being evacuated. Two firefighters were critically injured on Monday while fighting the Silverado fire. That blaze grew from just a few acres Monday to 11,200 acres on Tuesday morning, with 5 per cent of it contained. The Blue Ridge fire grew on Tuesday and 15,200 acres were gone by Tuesday morning.

A gust of 96 mph was measured in Los Angeles County and gusts up to 88 mph buffeted areas near Fremont Canyon. Ontario airport had to shut down due to the severe crosswinds, on Monday evening.

Northern California is in extreme heat and drought. The State witnessed the hottest day since records began in 1895.

Orange County, south of Los Angeles, had gusts pushing flames along brushy ridges in Silverado Canyon and in the sprawling city of Irvine.

According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), California's fire department and resource management agency, 41,49,345 acres (247 acres = 1 sq km) of forests have burned in 8,834 wildfires and there have been 31 fatalities reported. There are 10,488 buildings damaged or destroyed.

October and November are traditionally the worst months for fires, but already this year the damage has been very heavy.
