|96,000 acres have burned. 101 northbound traffic being rerouted to 5, then 166 back to 101. Winds are lower to 2 mph in La Conchita/Carpinteria. Still worrisome for Ojai, fire heading toward town. Things look better in Ventura. The Ojai Valley Inn closed yesterday.|
Ventura 101 Northbound is closed toward Santa Barbara out of Ventura, southbound lanes are open. Still have mandatory evacuations.
Planes with fire retardant material will be in the air at daylight out of Santa Maria. Any minute now.
If you don't have to be out, stay home, as air quality is very poor especially for those with respiratory issues. All of Southern California is at risk.
Hope everyone is safe who are in fire threatened areas, not overlooking LA, which is also raging out of control.
