Dry conditions and fierce winds — called the ‘Diablo’ winds in N. California and Santa Anas in So. Cal. — caused wildfires in the State to explode, triggering massive evacuations.

“We are deploying every resource available, and are coordinating with numerous agencies as we continue to respond to these fires,” Governor Newsom said in a statement.

 “Fire weather conditions are unprecedented due to the scale, scope, wind speed and dry fuel conditions, ” he added.
“This is the largest evacuation that any of us at the Sheriff’s Office can remember,” the Sonoma sheriff’s department tweeted. “Take care of each other.”
As desperate evacuees struggled to pack up cars and wrangle animals,  PG&E  shut off power to 960,000 more customers, compounding an already perilous situation.
