A time lapse video shows California’s Kincade Fire in Sonoma County, California, Friday, October 25.
READ MORE: Authorities in Northern California have directed 180,000 residents to evacuate as a wildfire continues to threaten the area Sunday.
Sonoma County has previously estimated 90,000 residents were being told to leave their homes as a result of the Kincaid fire.
Millions of California residents, meanwhile, are facing power outages as the utility company Pacific Gas & Electric decided Saturday afternoon to begin mass power shut-offs to a large number of customers. The shut-offs will affect nearly 1 million customers, or nearly 3 million people, and include San Francisco, California’s wine country and the Sierra foothills.
Forecasters said hot, dry winds, some as high as 112 kph (70 mph) could last into Monday in the San Francisco Bay area. The National Weather Service warned the winds, often called Santa Ana or Diablo winds, might be the most powerful in California in decades.
