This is for all those Kossacks in the danger zone to check in, let us know you're ok.  If there's someone you're worried about, ask here and people will say if they know.

This is NOT to be used to chase down people who we may be worried about. They may be fine and/or have better things to do than blog. Please be respectful of people's privacy.

If you're looking for information about evacuations, etc, check the latest liveblog thread for news:

If you're in the danger zone, heed the warning of the Mayor of San Diego from this morning:

"If you see a fire, please evacuate immediately. Don't wait to be told to leave," San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders said at a news conference this morning.

Also, add your prayers/positive thoughts for those who are in harm's way, be they residents of Southern Cal, firefighters or other emergency personnel, animals and their caretakers, and also those in the media trying to get information to people so they can know to evacuate and where to go.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
