Hey Alannah, it breaks my heart to see this on the news. My thoughts are for all the people who have to manage around it. It is terrible that such an advanced region in terms of everything (economics, wealth, infrastructure etc…) is still highly exposed to these natural dangers.
I experience the Napa fires in person and it was very nerve wracking. It was so bad that I had to relocate about a hour away and even then, it was still smokey and toxic. All you can really do is pray and hope for the best
