Over the weekend, crews battling the Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties made significant progress: While it grew to 281,620 acres—surpassing the 2003 Cedar Fire to become the largest fire in California history—containment of the fire also grew to 86%. Though fuels remain dangerously dry, firefighting conditions have been improved by calmer winds and rising humidity levels, and officials do not expect forward progress of the fire. The latest CAL FIRE report indicates that 1,063 structures have been destroyed and 280 have been damaged.

ALERT™ subscribers can now download a Touchstone®-ready GeoMAC shapefile of the perimeter for the Thomas Fire from the Downloads tab. Touchstone 5.0 and 5.1 users can import this shapefile as a map layer to assess impacts.

In Touchstone 5.1, Geospatial Analytics Module users can now view web map layers directly from organizations such as USGS, which include up-to-date spatial data (and historical data) to view within Touchstone. In addition to the shapefile, AIR is providing downloadable instructions on how to access the USGS web map layer within Touchstone 5.1 so that clients can view the perimeter as it is updated by the USGS. If you have any questions on this process please contact your AIR Representative.
