It is very unlikely to become a witness of a raging nature, especially if it is taking your favorite places on its way.
At about 9 pm Pacific time, in the city of San Francisco, I felt a strong smell of the smoke. Many residents called 911 complaining about the smell, but the reason was not established up until 11 pm.
Local news agencies began to report that Napa Valley, located one and a half hours away from the city is in danger – massive wildfires are coming into the region.
By the morning of October 9, the first reports of destroyed wineries began to arrive. Based on information from various Twitter users, the buildings of such wineries as White Rock Vineyards, Signorello (vineyards of this winery remained intact), Nicholson Ranch in Sonoma and Frey Vineyards in Mendocino got completely burned down. The famous Michelin restaurant – French Laundry is safe, but for the time being, it will be closed.
As a result of wildfires, one person died, and more than 20 thousand were evacuated from the region.
