Daughter Nicole (Nikki) Stevens, Captain with Santa Barbara County Fire Department, is working this fire and has sent me some great photos and videos of air tankers in action. Here's one of presumably #911 dropping near Coulterville, CA with lead plane banking off in the distance taken on Thursday or Friday. Not too bad for shooting with iPhone and in full turnouts.

Fire has burned 75,000 acres now with containment just about 30%. Heavy smoke and smoke inversion has grounded Tankers from working the fire. The town of Mariposa was lifted off of the evacuation order.
Tankers: #62.#105,#911 at Castle. (at least one Bae-146 did not get number).
Fresno: Maffs 4,6,9 C-130 #116. Also heard that Castle ran out of Jet-Fuel on Thursday or Friday and aircraft had to go too Mather Field (Sacramento) for fuel for a short time.

[californiadisasters] 1952 Arvin-Tehachapi Earthquake, Friday, 21 July 2017



"1952 Arvin-Tehachapi Earthquake" reminder
When
Friday, 21 July 2017
01:00 PM to 01:00 PM
(GMT) Greenwich Mean Time - Dublin / Edinburgh / Lisbon / London
Where
Kern County, Califorinia
Notes
At 4:52 A.M. this morning in 1952 the largest earthquake to strike California since 1906 rocked Central and Southern California. The quake was caused by a failure of the White Wolf Fault in Kern County and was M7.3-M7.7 depending upon what scale one is using to measure it. Twelve people were killed in the event which devastated Tehachapi and caused numerous casualties at the women's prison there. A woman was even killed in the Los Angeles area when she stepped on a live powerline. Damage to Bakersfield was moderate although it experienced even greater damage from an aftershock some weeks later that was epicentered much closer to the city than the main event. There was slight damage to a structure in both Las Vegas and San Diego and water swashed in tanks in both Los Angeles and San Francisco. The railroad running up through the Tehachapi Pass was heavily damaged with some tunnels even being "daylighted". Bear Mountain was lifted a foot by this quake.

[californiadisasters] Re: Detwiler Incident - MMU - Mariposa Co.



Columbia Air Attack Base is unable to launch tankers due to "weather conditions." I assume that means it is smoked in?

Also, the fire is now up to 45,724 officially with 7% containment. However, an IR flight map from last night places it unofficially at 54,724. Could they have goofed and switched the 4 and 5? Fire is already moving out this morning.

Detwiler Fire changed direction today 90 degrees and its length became its heads from Hwy 140 to north of the Merced River. Fire will soon be into both Mariposa and Mt. Bullion with potential for major loss of structures.

The fire has jumped Hwy 49 to the east (yesterday) and Hwy 140 this morning and is now making a run at the City of Mariposa which is being evacuated en masse and scores of strike teams are being ordered and air tankers are on no-divert with a second VLAT being ordered.

No chance of that unfortunately. It was at 15,500 acres this morning and today it kinda went nuclear.... and it is about to get into a huge bug kill zone by tomorrow or the day after.
