Kincade Fire 2019
Unfortunately, a wildfire has affected areas in Northern California once again. The Kincade fire started out near Geyserville on October 23rd and has since burned 77,758 acres of land, destroyed 374 structures, and affected 174 residencies. According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, power line failures and accidents have fueled the wildfire's destruction and resulted in the evacuation of over 180,000 residents in the Sonoma County region.
It is unfortunate to realize how threatening these wildfires can be, having dramatically affected residents in California for the last two years. According to a research project conducted by the MIT Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism, 25% of residents in California live in areas prone to wildfires and can be immediately affected. Communities in these areas have taken the charge to institute protective measures in events of natural disasters and it is important that we help those affected rebuild their stable living conditions.
