Wildfires in Southern California

It has been a dangerous few days here in Los Angeles and the larger Southern California area. The Santa Ana winds–a warm, dry wind that comes through Southern California in the the fall and early winter seasons–are causing wildfires (large, uncontrolled fires).

As the Los Angeles Times reports, over 700 homes have been destroyed (damaged completely). Firefighters who are working to put out the fires have told over 500,000 people to evacuate (leave) their homes. One person has died and about 50 people are injured or hurt, including about 20 firefighters.

We’re very fortunately here at ESL Podcast that everyone is safe. Thank you to all of our listeners who have emailed us to express their concern, or thought of us as they read the news.
