Three massive wildfires - the Camp, Woolsey, and Hill fires - are burning across the state of California. Northern California's Camp Fire is now the most destructive and deadliest fire in the state's history. These tragedies have claimed the lives of 80 people, and hundreds are still missing. More than 11,000 homes have been destroyed, and over 300,000 people have been forced to evacuate. Dataminr provided urgent alerts on the progression of the fires, casualties, and requests for help.
We’re holding an Alert to Action campaign collecting donations for Direct Relief’s wildfire relief efforts. This California-based nonprofit has been making daily deliveries of emergency medications, masks, and consumer health products to health facilities, shelters and public health agencies caring for thousands of victims and first responders.
Donate now to Direct Relief to help those affected by the California fires.
We will collect donations from Tuesday, November 27 through Tuesday, December 4. Thank you so much for your generosity in helping turn our alerts into action.
