I assume this is the Waze app:

The Los Angeles Police Department asked drivers to avoid navigation apps, which are steering users onto more open routes — in this case, streets in the neighborhoods that are on fire.

As horrible as this all sounds, we've had it much worse. The Thomas Fire is not yet on the list of the 20 worst California wildfires by acreage consumed.

In the area of the Lilac Fire the winds are blowing about 30 MPH toward the SW. This will blow the fire into the densely populated cities of Oceanside, Carlsbad and Vista.

This extends the evacuation area about 1 mile to the south and 1/2 a mile to the west.

Here's a list. Thomas is approaching no. 20, which was in close proximity to the current wildfire and occurred 32 years ago.

The great fear of some climate scientists is that this will happen every summer.
