It is very scary for those of us here who have loved ones in the area. My daughter, son-in-law and grandsons are in La Mesa, not far from the fires. They have been warned not to sleep through the night, as they may have to evacuate at any time. They have to get up periodically to check for updates, much like we do for hurricanes.
But, with over 200,000 people evacuated, where would they go?? I am sure hotels are full by now, and gouging is likely going strong, if california is anything like the hurricane prone states.
An awful situation

I've not heard it mentioned, but are the residents of California having the same problems with homeowners/business insurance as we do? It seems extensive property loss is a yearly guarantee in the area, while hurricanes are a "maybe".
