Do the LA county fires worry you?

Arguments For

At least 1000 residents evacuated. Four separate wildfires continue to burn as of Friday 8/28. Mountains and costal areas are affected.[1] Fire is not yet 100% contained. As of Aug 30, 2009 there are now 10,000 homes threatened by the fire.[2]

Arguments Against

Progress on containment has been made and only affects a small population that I am not a part of.

#LA Looks like there's no sign of any slowing down of these #fires. Luckily, I don't live anywhere near LA county.
As I have friends and family near LA county, I wish them well and hope that they are all safe. - thorie (twitter) 0
