California Wildfires

I lived in Santa Barbara and Ojai, CA from 1962-1976 during which time the land was devastated by wildfires and floods .
The winter brought rain, floods and uncontrolled hillside erosion continuing the misery.
I can't do anything from Bend, Oregon but by opening our growing database of erosion related items to those caught in Mother Nature's grip to any victims, free of cost and obligation, I can do something through my website
Send an e-mail verifying your loss and we'll send a link to access our database
In the meantime, visit our landslides/mudslides page listed in the Resources column
I only wish all a speedy recovery
