Over 100K acres burned
Fires burning in northern and eastern Poway. My cousin lives in The Heritage, the other side of Maderas Country Club, and their neighbor's house is burning, and people are looting the neighborhood. There's also fires down in the valley near Poway and Espola Roads, and along Highland Valley Road in the far north.
I-15 is closed from CA-79 in Temecula to CA-163 in Kearney Mesa.
I am still not under an evac order, but all of Poway north of Twin Peaks Road is, as is everything east of Midland, west of the San Diego Aqueduct, and north of Rattlesnake creek. The city just posted a last call for evacuation for the High Valley area.
The northeast edges of Scripps Ranch are beginning to burn.
Poway Unified has closed all its schools through Wednesday.

The Poway Community Center shelter is full. Our evacuees are being sent to Santana HS in Santee. I'll be going to Matt Dharm's house in Mira Mesa.

I'm backing up data on my server and taking that disk with me. I'll check there for mail as long as my system holds out. If the power fails or, God forbid, the house burns down, I'll be reachable at gmail.com with the username jalindquist

Do you have any news in regards to fires in Hidden Meaddows, Escondido? I have been trying to reach my aunt and haven't been able to get in touch. If you have any information please answer. Thanks and blessings to you all.Denise

Re: Fires

I'm sorry, I do not. I don't think anything is still burning in Escondido, but there are power and phone lines down all over the place because of the fires. I've been out working one of the relief stations, I don't have the means to check. Sorry!
