Tuesday morning sunrise in smoky skies above Black Butte.
I know I said yesterday was the last time I was going to post some maps from the Carr Fire. However, I came across a few more helpful maps that I reckoned might be helpful if shared. These will definitely be the last ones, since I am heading to Texas to go on a BBQ and country music odyssey with my best friend. That said, to the maps:
The fire’s growth has slowed significantly. It has now surpassed 100,000 acres but it is also 25% contained. Here is how it looked at 8:30 AM on Tuesday:
Compare this morning with yesterday morning:
Another helpful map I found shows structures damaged by the fire. This map is in the process of being updated, so it is not yet exhaustive. It has much more detail when examined in the online version.
Lastly, here is a really helpful gif that illustrates the fire’s expansion. The explosion on Thursday is very reminiscent of what happened in Sonoma County with the Tubbs Fire.
Hopefully all the maps have helped. Keep praying the fire will burn itself out soon and the smoke will blow away. Lord willing!
