National Weather Service Issues “Extreme Red Flag Warning” over Fires

HeadlineOct 30, 2019

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles has issued a rare “extreme red flag warning” for Southern California as climate change-fueled wildfires continue to ravage the state. This is the first time the Weather Service has used the term “extreme red flag warning,” as winds up to 80 miles an hour threaten to spread the uncontrolled Getty Fire. California Governor Gavin Newsom declared a statewide emergency Sunday as wildfires spread from Los Angeles and Northern California, burning tens of thousands of acres and forcing the evacuation of over 180,000 people.
