I'm surprised there isn't a thread about this already. A brush fire broke out in Simi Valley and winds took it all the way down to Malibu so far. Celebrities are running for their lives (but continuing to tweet about it).

California is always burning… Or shaking… Or sliding down a muddy hill…

Maybe because nobody cares about the Hollyweirds in Malibu. Or, maybe because most of practice “if you have nothing nice to say...”

The Paradise fire, up in NorCal is bad, too. A friend of mine sold her 5 acres /house last year and moved farther north to Altura. Her old house is gone. Another friends in-laws made it out, but have lost everything.

We may have Kalifornia's politicians, but at least we don't have their other problems of Mother Nature.

Yes it's heartbreaking to lose everything you own like that. I certainly have empathy for them, and I Thank God Maryland does not face this sort of thing every year.
Yes, but we have hurricanes and an occasional tornado.

I'd take any of those over a fire (or earthquake!) that can strike with little to no warning and cause such extreme destruction. Those videos of people escaping overnight are terrifying.

I'm from California and have been through plenty of earthquakes. The only one that really bothered me was the Loma Prieta Quake. When we had the quake here 7 (?) years ago, it was a little blast of home for me. :lol:

The one here was the first I ever experienced, once was enough!
 
Are large wildfires like this named like hurricanes or something? They keep calling it Camp Fire on the news channels which led me to believe that a campfire started it.

Nerd alert! They kept calling it the "Woolsey Fire" so I ran it down. It started as a brushfire on Woolsey Street in Simi Valley. They're saying it now covers 54 sq. miles.
