Is anyone else feeling the effects of all these wildfires?

 

The Rim Fire near Yosemite is now over 63,000 acres, and only 1 - 2% contained.  I know there are big fires in Oregon and Idaho, and still more fires in CA.

Yes, there are a lot of fires happening. There is a map here that shows them all, for the most part: http://www.esri.com/services/disaster-response/wildlandfire/latest-news-map

According to that, the Yosemite fire was 105,695 acres as of yesterday afternoon.  They talked about having to evacuate some people, but I'm not sure if any have been.  Oh, here is a news story: http://www.tahoedailytribune.com/news/7830563-113/fire-park-homes-yosemite
