Over 1,000 structures have been damaged or destroyed, and 98,000 people have been forced to evacuate since the fires started a week ago.Here are the numbers as of Monday morning, according to Los Angeles County officials and Cal Fire, a state fire-safety agency: The first and largest blaze, the Thomas Fire, started Oct 4 in Ventura County. Several cities in the Ojai Valley were under mandatory evacuation orders on Saturday, though some of those orders have been lifted.
This is not 'watch the news and go about your day.' This is 'pay attention minute-by-minute …
keep your head on a swivel.'" Lorenzen told The LA Times on Thursday that if rains don't fall on the region, the Thomas Fire could continue burning for weeks.
The figure is calculated based on moisture levels, wind, humidity, and a range of other factors.
A rating above 162 is considered the most extreme risk.
