See instructions below.This eBook contains Inferno: an Eyewitness account of San Diego on Fire and other stories.In 2007, a number of natural wildfires broke out in San Diego. The Witch Creek fire was the first and the largest of a series of wildfires that spread across Southern California – including areas in the Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties – and Northern Mexico.The author and his family had just moved to San Diego a few months before the wild fire burned down 198,000 acres (800 square km) in his neighborhood and adjacent towns.Wildfires are a relatively common natural occurrence in Southern California and occur naturally expected between June and October in the arid Southern California region, when the combination of the arid climate with less than 10% humidity and the fierce Santa Ana winds (also known as the Devil Winds) combine to ignite the dry forest timber and spread the resulting flames.As human habitation has spread across the arid areas covered highly flammable brush-lands, the potential for catastrophe has simply becomes greater.In 2007, when the author was forced to witness this right after moving to the area, these fires were so fierce that flames and smoke could be seen from outer space. In fact, NASA satellites were able to take some pictures that would be considered awesome, if only they werent depicting something so terrible.These giant flame required the evacuation of more than a million people – the largest evacuation ever staged in the history of California. In San Diego alone, 900,000 had to leave their homes.By the time the fires were finally brought under control on October 26, at least 12 people were dead and 2,000 homes and other structures had been burned down. San Diego County was, of course, the worst hit. In that area alone, losses amounted to around a billion dollars.the other stories include Feminization of Las Vegas, Inside the Giant Machine and Into the Heart of the Mind.Presidents Day OfferBuy this eBook at any of Amazons Kindle eBook stores and forward your Amazon order confirmation to inferno @ social-commerce.us.
