The city of Santa Rosa, under siege by wildfire, released a citizen-created, open source interactive aerial neighborhood map on Friday, showing areas of fire damage by street.
The areas of red, however, show the presence of vegetation, and the black areas have been burned, or it is water. Residents can scroll around to find their exact street and inspect what it looks like from above. The map should show if your house is still standing. If people see that their house appears to be gone on the map, they should verify that information with other sources and look at the surrounding area for context. The coverage area spans from Santa Rosa to Napa.CLICK HERE FOR INTERACTIVE MAP
As of Friday morning, there were more than two dozen wildfires being fought in Northern California, and five in Napa and Sonoma counties. At least two of those fires, the Tubbs and Atlas fires, threaten the city of Santa Rosa. The total acreage for all five fires is nearly 70,000 acres the city reported, with a containment of 14 percent.
As the fires enter the fifth day, the city of Santa Rosa reminded people that there is still no entry into any of the evacuated areas.
The city is working to help those affected by the fire, and that help will be found here.
