California declares statewide emergency: More than 180,000 people ordered to flee their homes as 'historic, extreme winds' fan fires over 768 square MILES and power is shut off to 2.3 million people

California Governor Gavin Newsom of California declared a state of emergency on Sunday
It came after around 180,000 people was ordered near a Northern California wildfire on Sunday
That order was issued after the state's largest utility, PG&E, shut power off to 940,000 homes
By Saturday night, 90,000 people had already been ordered to evacuate. The order encompasses a huge swath of wine country
The expanded evacuation order now covers parts of Santa Rosa, a city of 175,000 that was devastated by a wildfire two years ago
Some gusts this weekend could reach up to 80mph and could lead to 'erratic fire behavior', officials warned
PG&E said the new wave of blackouts started Saturday evening, affecting 38 counties for 48 hours or longer
Gov. Newsom said Saturday: 'The next 72 hours is going to be challenging. I can sugarcoat it, but I'm not'

Upside of this is that firefighters are taking advantage of the wildfires to let them burn out underbrush in areas where it's safe to do so.

They're finally starting to do real forestry and land management and that means fire is a normal and natural part of the process! R=UP

Bart, I really hope you, your wife and home are safe. If fire is near where you live, I know from personal experience it can be a stressful time.
