Everyone, including myself, is searching for up-to-date maps showing the wildfires burning. If you have Google Earth installed, you can see a map showing flame icons in the areas with current wildfires. Zoom in. Click on a flame icon, and it will tell you the name of the fire and it’s status, such as 20% contained, or whatever it happens to be.
Google Earth is an easy download and install (completely free). To get the Texas wildfire status on the map, go to this page on the Texas Forestry Service website, and click on the globe. In just a moment, you will see a map of the U.S., and you can’t miss all the flame icons in Texas. Zoom in by clicking on the + button. Pan left, right, up, or down to find the fire you want information on, then click on that flame icon.
It looks like we’re in for a really bad time tomorrow. Good luck to everyone in the danger zones. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
