The Los Angeles Times reports:

Stuart Seto, a specialist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard, said humidity had dropped significantly in the area – “from 80% down into the teens, and they’re getting lower.” That, coupled with “extreme” wind gusts, would likely make Thursday “the worst day as far as the fires,” Seto said. “This is really dry,” he said. “The fire in Camarillo Springs really jumped up from nothing to 100 acres in no time at all.”

KCRW’s Kajon Cermak is tweeting more on the closures here.

    I'm interested in what is being done to restore the La Jolla Valley Natural Preserve and Big Sycamore Canyon areas. Do you know if there is a newsletter for this? Is there a report anywhere that adds up the total damage, lost wildlife, plans to restore, etc.?
    Thanks
