Santa Ana Winds Help Flame Huge Firestorm in Southern California The fires in Southern California went from 0 to 30,000 (acres) in a matter of hours fueled by the Santa Ana winds. These winds, also dubbed the Diablo (Devil) Winds, are hot, dry, and ferocious. They can whip a small brush fire into a raging inferno in just hours. This is exactly what Southern California experienced on Monday night (Dec. 4). Thousands of residents found themselves evacuating when the Thomas Fire suddenly pushed into Ventura by the Santa Ana winds. These horrific winds are expected to continue through the end of the week making firefighting more difficult and much more dangerous. Winds in the area could reach 70 mph and this would have a devastating effect on the fire's movement. The fire has consumed over 50,000 acres at present as it jumped over Highway 101 and moved towards the Pacific Ocean. Hundreds of homes and structures have been destroyed in this latest round of wildfires in #California. Per the National Weather Center red flag conditions are expected to continue through the end of the week. This current round of Diablo Winds has been the longest and strongest wind event recorded this season. NASA's Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image with the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, MODIS, instrument on Dec. 05, 2017. Actively burning areas (hot spots), detected by MODIS’s thermal bands, are outlined in red. Each hot spot is an area where the thermal detectors on the MODIS instrument recognized temperatures higher than background. When accompanied by plumes of smoke, as in this image, such hot spots are diagnostic for fire. NASA image courtesy Jeff Schmaltz LANCE/EOSDIS MODIS Rapid Response Team, GSFC #nasagoddard #science

    Let it burn to the ocean. That many people shouldn’t be living in a desert and on such an active fault line anyway. Wake up America! We can’t be shelling out billions every year to bail out from these disasters. Better to invest it in beefing up safer places to live and relocating the populace, while letting larger swaths of land be the wilderness it should be.

  • seedymeats 09-Dec-2017 15:19:30 PM

    @israel_fredrickson Fuck that! What good is your money and fame when the poor masses cut your heads off and parade them stakes? Just wait. It’s coming.

    @janet_quinn_10 I didn’t hear that story? But most forest fires are usually arson now a days. Last autumn’s fires in the SE we’re all arson except for one. Could be political? Whose to say? Honestly it wouldn’t surprise me if the GOP is doing it. They want to speed up global warming to drill for arctic oil and open the northwest passage for shipping. And if the forests that are being saved by environmentalists burn down then there’s nothing to save and they’ll be free to develop that land.

    @seedymeats back in the 1970 we know seeding clouds were done then, we know we are far more advanced, NASA could've rained on the fires, we're beyond controlling weather.

The Millennium Falcon (15 mm🙊🔬✨) «Чуи, мы дома!»🦁✨☺️ ⠀ Тысячелетний сокол по праву заслуживает встать в строй домиков и замочков, ведь для пары космических путешественников он и правда был настоящим домом🤗 Ну а название, так созвучное с моей девичьей фамилией (Соколова) окончательно определила выбор натуры (хотя я ещё размышляла о Звезде смерти, но она очень.. выделялась бы среди ряда мими-замочков😁, а восхитительные замки Набу и прочих планет было бы сложно узнать) ⠀ Я фанат этой невероятной киновселенной с самого детства! Помню как в 5 лет папа открыл для меня мир далекой-далекой галактики и с тех пор эта история одна из самых дорогих сердцу!♥️✨ @hamillhimself в роли Скайуокера был моей первой любовью, вот только до сих пор помню своё недоумение: «Ну как же можно было назвать сына Люком?»🤨😅 Ну а звук милее речи R2-D2 и придумать сложно🤗 ⠀ Так что я обязана была выразить свою любовь к этим фильмам в своём проекте, а видео к этой работе получилось на мой взгляд сааамым красивым из всех!😍❤️ Уже завтра вы сможете его увидеть! И заодно рассмотреть космически-крутой маникюр от @nailmaker.bar - у меня там целые галактики🙊😍✨ Не думала что так можно!!🌌♥️✨ ⠀ ⠀ P.S. У кого в голове зазвучала коронная мелодия?😁
