Check out the latest California Updates

November 2019

Two October fires — the Kincade Fire in northeastern Sonoma County and the Saddle Ridge Fire in Los Angeles County — are now 100 percent contained. There have been no fatalities associated with either fire and the affected acreage of these two incidents amounts to less than 0.08% of California’s total area. If you are considering a trip to California, please know the vast majority of the state remains completely unaffected by fires and is fully open for business. 

It is worth noting that California is a massive state—roughly 900 miles long and 350 miles wide. For a better sense of the distances separating many California communities, please review California Geography Essentials, which also lists drive times between key destinations.
