The wildfires raging in Southern California remain a dynamic and potentially dangerous situation for nearby communities.

Wildfires are actively burning throughout the region, with firefighters keeping a particularly wary watch on the Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, which has prompted several large scale evacuations.

As a public service, Direct Relief’s research and analytics team created a dynamically-updating map with layers like evacuation zones, wind direction, structures destroyed and other data for the Thomas Fire and other fires burning in the region.

Direct Relief’s map updates every hour based on data from NASA satellite sources, the U.S. Geological Survey, the National Weather Service and more.
