Hundreds of homes destroyed or threaten in Ventura, 100 miles Northwest of Los Angeles in the Thomas Fire. Winds (dry, from the northeast)) sustained at 30-40 mph over the region means it's going to get worse. It's growing at about an acre per second. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/fire_wx/fwdy1.html This is Metabunk related as a new type of conspiracy theory sprang up with the Napa fires - that they were caused by DEWs (Directed Energy Weapons) shot from space. However the reasons for this fire are mostly weather related. High winds, low humidity, lots of fuel from the rains last season, no recent rain. So there's no need to invoke magical causes. It is likely that people still will, so I think it's important to note the real reasons for the fires.

Minor improvement tomorrow, then high winds again on Thursday will make the fires near impossible to control.
