Prayer Request for SoCal Fires - Page 7

Stressed out, but happy to be safe. We're out at my parents' house in the De Luz area of Temecula, on the west side of the freeway out in the hills. The wind is pretty bad here, so I'm a little spooked about being here--that if a fire started nearby, we would not be safe. So far there are no signs of that happening, nut my nerves are shot.

We've been hearing on the radio that the fire is close to our house. We live on the north side of Lake Hodges, in an unincorporated area of Escondido. I'm trying to stay focused on all the positive--that we're okay, that we have somewhere to go besides a shelter to go, that we had time to get out with a few essential items. I'm glued to the news, which probablyisn't helping. I just want to know were the fire is going next.
Glad you are all safe, sorry that you have to worry though. My mom is up by you right now, she has friends that she works for in De Luz. I hope it doesnt shift that way.

Thanks ladies.

I think MLW knows I live in the sticks and am lucky to have Internet access, much less LA stations.

Just got an email from my mom. South Fallbrook also is now under mandatory evac (just north of my parents). Just south of them is under mandatory evac, too. They are sandwiched between fires right now, but NOT under voluntary or mandatory evac. It's very touch and go, and with it hot and windy until Wednesday . . . anything could happen. I can only imagine the mass destruction if the fire really does burn all the way to the ocean. My mom said homes have been destroyed in Rancho Santa Fe, too. That would put the fire about halfway to the ocean from 15.

I'm glad you are alright

Just saw that the evac zone for the Witch Creek fire as updated recently on this website: http://www.cbs8.com/misc/fires_oct_07/maps.html (second map down) is very, very close to my parents. It's twice as big as it was earlier today (i.e. has doubled in size in the northerly direction). I wouldn't have thought that fire was the one really threatening them, but the whole thing is so completely out of control that they could practically lose half the county. I guess I am kind of shocked at how huge and out of control this is. Not that it could happen - of course it "could" happen - just that it actually is happening.

I also wonder where all the evacuees will go. That is a huge population to try to move.

All of Fallbrook is under mandatory evacuation now. So is Crest and Harbison Canyon : This makes me really sad because that is where my kids dad lives and even though i left him under bad circumstances i still care. And all of my kids and i belongings are there on the property at the foothills of Crest outside in a wood shake barn. I so hoped to have gotten my belongings back someday.

I just saw this thread mentioned in the tribal areas and thought I'd stop by and offer positive thoughts for everyone affected.

We are in Woodland Hills right on the edge of Calabasas. We are surrounded by the fire on 3 sides, but plenty far away from it. It's smoky, the air burns your lungs, and the wind gusts shake the house, but, we are safe.

I hope all you mamas, your families, and your homes make it through safe and sound.

I just found this:

NEW: NORTH COUNTY EVACUATIONS LIFTED: Mandatory Evacuations have been LIFTED in San Marcos for San Elijo Hills and Coronado Hills.


Does that help you at all Romana? I hope that is good news for your family!

My mom said in her email that the information is conflicting - they are getting different info from different sources re the San Marcos evacs but the bottom line is just to be ready to evac, esp. since they have fires just north and south of them. Thanks for the info, though - where did you find it? I feel kind of lost trying to find reliable information.

I got that on the CBS8 website. How awful to not know either way. A playgroup friend has family in Fallbrook, and they were ordered to evacuate and are trying to get up here right now. No word on if they've made it, but I imagine that traffic is pretty heavy from there to here, and that they will have to go around the long way.

Thanks.

I've been glued to the news. Keeping everyone in my thoughts. My sister, BIL & their 1 1/2 mo baby were evacuated from the Lake Arrowhead fire this afternoon : I can hear on the news that a DC10, the GIANT plane, just dropped water on that fire. Hope it helps as nightfall is approaching.

They just reported that over a 100 homes have been burned in Fallbrook.That is a very small town. Way beautiful.

I'm in San Diego - thankfully not near the fires, but it's still sad and scarey. I know my son has some classmates from the affected areas - I really hope every one is safe.
