Big Sur’s Soberanes Fire Plume 2016 from Carmel Valley Airport – Aug 8, afternoon 2-pm
This smoke plume is blowing in a new direction: much more East than South-East (the direction the whole fire was advancing in general up till now).
The plume poking up on the right looks to be from the Los Padres Dam area.
Frighteningly, the low cloud of smoke just to the left is from just downstream, apparently in the Prince’s Camp / Cachagua valley – where a lot of people live.
