The California wildfires on Google maps and news

Rather than contacting everyone you know who might live the LA or San Diego areas every few hours, you can use this useful Google map to check up on their area and then dive deeper into the latest news. It shows all of the wildfire sites, their status in terms of containment, vital stats, and related news stories.

This type of representation is especially helpful in trying to keep up with news that is so geographically sensitive and ever-changing. Let’s hope all these fire icons above turn to green (100% containment) very soon.
