The Best Sites To Learn About The September 2009 California Wildfires

| 0 comments

It looks like I’ll be putting together an annual (or even more often) “The Best…” list about each year’s fires that hit us here in California.

I posted a similar list this past May called The Best Sites To Learn About The California Wildfires.  It also included a number of informational links to wildfires in general, and I won’t repeat those here.

Unfortunately, I suspect this list will be growing over the next few days.

Here are my picks for The Best Sites To Learn About The September 2009 California Wildfires (and are accessible to English Language Learners):

The Sacramento Bee has a series of photos on The California Wildfires.

Wildfires Rage In California is a Wall Street Journal video.

Fire Spreads To 100,000 Acres is a Wall Street Journal slideshow. It also has an interactive map.

On The Fire Lines are photos from the Los Angeles Times.

Southland FIres is a slideshow from The LA Times.

California Blaze Continues To Burn is a slideshow from The New York Times.

Intractable Flames Near Los Angeles is a video from The New York Times.

Fire Devastates Auburn Homes is a slideshow from the Sacramento Bee about a smaller, but still destructive fire, that we had near Sacramento last night.

Burning Near Los Angeles is another slideshow from The Wall Street Journal.

California Wildfires Threaten Homes is a series of photos from The Denver Post.

Weather Aids Firefighters’ Progress is a slideshow from The New York Times.

Wildfires In Southern California is a series of images from The Boston Globe’s Big Picture.

Scientists Investigate the Aftermath of a Damaging Fire is a slideshow from the NY Times.

Suggestions and feedback, as always, are welcome.

If you found this post useful, you might want to look at previous “The Best…” lists and also consider subscribing to this blog for free.
