Urgent fire warning extended

A Red Flag Warning for very low humidity and strong winds continues for Scripps Ranch and all of San Diego County according to the National Weather Service. Strong surface high pressure over the Great Basin will bring periods of strong Santa Ana winds and very low humidity through the rest of the week. Winds will gradually weaken Friday and Saturday, but critical fire weather conditions will continue through Friday and Saturday in San Diego County.

The Red Flag Warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. Saturday for strong, gusty winds and low humidity. The strongest and most widespread winds are expected to occur late tonight through Thursday when extreme fire weather conditions are likely.

Areas of northeast winds are expected from 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 60 mph. Isolated gusts up to 90 mph are likely late tonight through Thursday in the remote canyon and foothill locations. Strongest wind gusts will be along and below coastal mountain slopes and below passes and canyons. Minimum humidity will fall to around 5 percent with very poor overnight recovery.

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior. Any fires that develop will spread rapidly and be very difficult to control. Avoid any activities that could spark a fire.

Offshore flow will continue next week with low humidity but generally lighter winds.

Intense fires have broken out in Ventura County and Los Angeles counties. Fires in Ventura County have already entered the city of Ventura, consuming more than 150 structures. Those fires are out of control, with zero percent containment as they are fueled by dry brush and high winds. Fires in the Los Angeles area have shut down the I-405 interstate freeway and burned into the Los Angeles communities of Brentwood and Bel-Aire.

Please note that should a wildfire break out and threaten Scripps Ranch, Scripps Ranch News and its affiliated social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) will be the places to see up-to-date information. Scripps Ranch News will provide updates until it is forced to evacuate, in which case a one- to two-hour delay may occur while a new position is located outside of the danger zone. Scripps Ranch News will continue to provide mobile updates no matter what happens. Scripps Ranch News will provide the best coverage and updates possible, as often as possible until the emergency ends, if necessary. Should such an emergency occur, Scripps Ranch News asks that readers send information and photos to john@scrippsranchnews.com so that updates may be shared with the community.


Monitor possible fire areas
UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography has placed 19 cameras at rural locations throughout San Diego County. The public can monitor possible fire activity by accessing the views from these cameras at hpwren.ucsd.edu/cameras. The cameras are part of the High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN), a UCSD partnership project led by the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics. HPWREN supports internet-data applications in the areas of research, education and public safety.


Mountain lion sightings reported
Residents in Scripps Ranch have reported what they believe to be a mountain lion on Tuesday night and another a couple of weeks ago.

Tuesday night’s sighting was reported as a mountain lion near a bush in a family’s front yard on Rue Saint Lazare. This street is south of the southwest portion of Pomerado Road, with military open, undeveloped property to its southern border. As in many Scripps Ranch Neighborhoods, a swath of woods stands behind the homes on this street. In this case, Rue Saint Lazare has a long, fish hook-shaped section of dry woodland behind it. See a detailed satellite image of the area at bit.ly/2ivxfuR.

A nearby neighbor thought they spotted a mountain lion a few weeks ago.

Mountain lions can be very dangerous and have been known to attack humans on isolated trails in Southern California. Residents are advised to stand sill, facing the animal if they spot a mountain lion. Learn more at MountainLion.org.
