FIRE - update 11:20am

I got a call from my Tony, who lives in Encinitas, east of the I-5. He said he knows that people are getting the 911 calls. These people are told (via recording from 911) that they should get their belongings together. This notice is a 2 hour notice. If they are required to evacuate, they will be called again by the 911 system to go immediately. Tony has not received a call. Yet. So far, over 250,000 people have had to evacuate their homes in San Diego county. Where are all these people going? Some are headed to Las Vegas. Most are headed towards the coast. Can't go too far north on the I-5 because there are fires up there, too. The I-15 is now closed between the 76 and Rainbow. Where I live, there is no access north or south on the I-15. I'm going to go get a Google map. I'll be right back.
