US West Coast fire check-in

I know that *lots* of MeFites live in areas that are currently under threat, and some of you likely have already had to evacuate. I wanted to create a space for folks to check in, share stories, grieve together, perhaps offer crash space to evacuees, and just commiserate about the latest shovelful of shit that 2020 has dumped on our heads.

Corona Virus Check-in Thread no. 3

I can't improve on Gotanda's intro for the last check in thread so here it is again updated: A third catch-all thread for mefites living in areas directly affected by novel coronavirus (aka SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19) picking up from the last one. Again, please no idle speculation, catastrophizing, or chat. Let's stick to actual news, updates, personal experiences, and more mutual support from and to people dealing with this virus in their daily lives. How you all doing?

MetaHeatWave

A fair number of countries/places around the world are experiencing extreme heat and weather conditions. I wanted to have a place for us to check-in with each other. Remember to reach out to your neighbors, friends, family, and loved ones to make sure they're ok. People who are older, as well as our MetaPets, should also be given extra consideration as they're particularly vulnerable to this kind of heat. A reminder to drink lots of water and find some shade and/or air conditioning if possible. Feel free to share your own tips/tricks for keeping cool.

Ireland Hurricane Ophelia Check In

Thought there might should be one of these. Ophelia was a cyclone, tempest, a God damned hurricane. And she's bearing down on Ireland. Should be a little weaker, but MeFis, stay safe!

California fire check-in

Overnight in Northern California, a 200 acre fire became a 57,000 acre fire and people are desperately trying to evacuate. There are at least 10 dead and 1,500 structures have been destroyed. The L.A. Times has live coverage, Mercury News has the local story. Meanwhile in SoCal, Canyon Fire No. 2 in the Anaheim Hills area of Orange County is up to 5,000 acres. A mandatory evacuation order is in place; 1000+ people have been evacuated so far, and six structures have been destroyed. Wildfire Today has updates on fires across the state. I hope all our MeFite friends and family are okay. Please let us know if you need help.

With a major storm about to hit southern Texas and then linger around southeastern TX for nearly a week, I thought maybe having a check-in / status update post here might be a good idea. I hope everyone stays safe and sane during these next few days.
