    NASA Photos: California Fires Seen From Space as Giant Plumes of Smoke

    By Sydney Pereira On 12/6/17 at 10:32 AM

    Thick plumes of smoke bellowed from raging fires in southern California through Tuesday night—so thick and extensive it could be seen from space.
    Thick smoke streamed from several fires in southern California when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image in the afternoon on December 5, 2017. NASA/Joshua Stevens
    NASA captured the photo Tuesday afternoon from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite, which shows the quickest and largest blaze, Thomas fire in Ventura County and two smaller fires south of Ventura. The fire has destroyed more than 50,000 acres, according to Cal Fire, the state's Department for Forestry and Fire Protection. Two smaller fires, Rye and Creek, in Los Angeles County, have destroyed 5,000 and more than 11,000 acres respectively. (Per Cal Fire, fires are typically named for the areas where they start.) The fire, which began Monday night, has forced 27,000 people to flee their homes.

    “The fire is very dangerous and spreading rapidly, but we’ll continue to attack it will all we’ve got,” Governor Jerry Brown said Tuesday in a statement. “It’s critical residents stay ready and evacuate immediately if told to do so.”

    No indication of foul play. This was in news few weeks ago:

    Cal Fire continues to probe cause of deadly wildfires despite arson arrest


    • Sonoma County Sheriff Robert Giordano said an arson suspect was seen "walking away from a small fire."
    • The 29-year-old suspect allegedly had "a fire extinguisher and a lighter with him," the sheriff said.
    • Despite the arson arrest, Cal Fire said Tuesday afternoon it continues to investigate the cause of each of the wildfires in Northern California.
    • The wildfires have claimed more than 41 lives, and many more people remain listed as missing.

    The predominant wind direction is WNW or NW, but the reason for the fires is the santa anas that create the NE winds which is why they are blowing out into the ocean.

    Imagine if those plumes were going over Los Angeles, instead of out into the ocean..

    maybe the heat will aggravate the fault lines and California will break off from the continent and go floating out to sea.

    Save Trump the hassle of building the wall.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    When we had our home built 12 years ago I tried hard to find someone who would build it using steel studs with sheet-rock and brick. Steel studs are commonplace in commercial construction but I can't find where anyone is using them for homes. I have used them for partition walls for many years and I find the heavy gauge steel studs to be stronger than the wood ones and fireproof and bug-proof to boot...

    Most likely it was "act of God" as there have been various such incidences, considering below recent news , hopefully possible causes are being checekd out.

    60,000 flee massive fires raging across Haifa; arson suspected

    Buildings consumed in several locations; 11 neighborhoods cleared; 100 treated for minor injuries; other fires across country; Greece, Russia, Cyprus, Turkey send help; police chief: some suspects in custody

    By TOI staff 24 November 2016


    A picture taken on November 24, 2016 shows a bushfire raging in the northern Israeli port city of Haifa. Hundreds of Israelis fled their homes on the outskirts of the country's third city Haifa with others trapped inside as firefighters struggled to control raging bushfires, officials said. (AFP PHOTO / Jack GUEZ)

    Some sixty thousand people were evacuated from their homes in Haifa Thursday as a wave of wildfires threatened the bay metropolis, bolstered by high winds and dry conditions that have contributed to a spate of blazes across the country this week.

    So this fire is still raging on, fifth largest fire on record and may very well go up in the list.. I've been having to wear a mask outside due to all the smoke.

    But here's a funny government failure:

    With a rush to pick crops before they wilted under the ash, owners nevertheless dispatched their workers, masks or no masks. Complaints started flooding into Cal/OSHA, but the state agency had closed its regional headquarters in Van Nuys and its Oxnard satellite office soon after the fire began. Recordings told callers they could fax a complaint form that would be received the following week. But under mounting pressure from Ventura residents, and state legislators Monique Limón and Hannah-Beth Jackson, Cal/OSHA reopened its Oxnard office on Friday and started deploying staff into the fields.
