Butte County Sheriff publishes "Body-Worn Camera Video of BCSO Deputy Helping with Evacuations During The Camp Fire."

https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=vWNV27PIlNc

http://www.buttecounty.net/ has "The National Weather Serivce has issued Flash Flood WARNING for the Camp Fire burn scares and impact areas until 9:15 PM, NOvember 29th", including "a high risk of debris flows and flash flooding due to heavy rain. A flash flood WARNING indicates that flash flooding is occuring, or is imminent."
They also list an Evacuation Order and an Evacuation Warning, due to flooding.

I wasn't able to see your video link Canoe, but I'm guessing this is the video source you're referencing

EDIT: I went back and put a space in my link here, so it no longer automatically comes up, much as Canoe has been doing.

lol - I can't see your link.

My link works, if you remove the space in the middle. I posted it with the space so it wouldn't embed so those coming here aren't subjected to it without their choosing to do so.

Yeah, now that you mention it Canoe, I recall you noting the blank space technique in one of your posts some time back. Seems like a thoughtful thing to do for those who have been deeply impacted by the tragedy.

I cannot imagine what family of missing are going through. Sure you are in touch with the sheriff office.

Adding to Mr Canoe's excellent posts, they are using portable DNA testing of remains against voluntary samples collected from family members. Very rapid matching, hours, matching or not (hopefully) family to remains from pre-collected family samples. Contact the sheriff office if you have family involved.

It is highly unlikely that anyone who should be involved isn't already aware, but just in case someone stumbles in here, the current points of contact are provided on http://www.buttecounty.net/sheriffcoroner
Among other links and information, that currently includes:
  • The Unaccounted For Persons list (list of the missing)
  • Phone numbers for removing or adding people to that list (they don't want emails).
  • A link to a web site regarding Camp Fire DNA testing.
Phone numbers and links NOT provided here, as you should see the Sheriffcoroner's site for current valid information and instructions.
Also see https://buttecountyrecovers.org in case that site is updated before http://www.buttecounty.net/sheriffcoroner
...
Unaccounted For Persons List currently at 49 people.
Civilian Fatalities at 91. (not confirmed from official sources; source https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/8-n ... -wildfires)
...
(buttecounty.net and butcountyrecovers.org appear to continue to NOT have official releases on those sites, after the Update page was removed. If anyone knows of such a page/link, please provide such here.)

On Monday, at least 300 new students from Paradise will be joining the Chico Unified School District...
Meanwhile, the district had orientations set up at various different schools on Friday to welcome the students from Paradise to their new classrooms, show them around and meet some of the staff and students.

PGE filing for bankruptcy, CEO stepped down, credit rating downgraded to junk status, stock crashed. Judge planning to order them to inspect grid and clean up trees around its lines. They've sparked at least 1500 fires. 2017 & 2018 gave them $30 billion in potential liability. Could face murder charges.

https://www.pge.com/en/about/newsroom/n ... chapter_11
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG) ("PG&E" or "the Company") said today it remains committed to providing safe natural gas and electric service to customers as it prepares to initiate voluntary reorganization proceedings under Chapter 11. The Company today provided the 15-day advance notice required by recently enacted California law that it and its wholly owned subsidiary Pacific Gas and Electric Company (the "Utility") currently intend to file petitions to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code on or about January 29, 2019.

PGE filed.
On Tuesday morning, California utility Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (PDF), citing billions of dollars in potential damages and fines stemming from liability in several 2017 and 2018 wildfires.

The utility noted in its Tuesday filing that it has secured $5.5 billion in debtor-in-possession financing to continue operating while it restructures.
...

As the utility attempts to restructure, it looks poised to try to get out of or change several renewable-energy power purchase agreements (PPAs), according to the company's filing on Tuesday.

PG&E argued that it has signed hundreds of contracts for renewable energy and storage (equivalent to 7.78 gigawatts of renewable contracts and 540 megawatts of storage) at high, early adopter prices. Now it wants to break those contracts and replace them with the cheaper solar, wind, and storage prices that currently prevail in the market.
