1042+

I counted over 50 evacuation centers. They included our football stadium, the racetrack and fairgrounds, a casino, schools, recreation centers, and churches that opened their doors to evacuees (some are still open). As of this morning the latest tally for homes destroyed by the fires is 1042 and the numbers continue to grow. The 4 fires in the county are still burning:
The Harris Fire is 85,800 acres and 50% contained.
The Witch Fire is 197,990 acres and 60% contained.
The Rice Fire is 9,000 acres and 80% contained.
The Poomacha Fire is 43,000 acres and 45% contained.
Thanks to all for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers as our community begins to recover. Click here for recovery resources.

It seems endless, doesn't it? Your photo is peaceful, given the circumstances. Good choice!
