In Southern California, most evacuation orders have been lifted as firefighters successfully battle a wildfire that destroyed 14 buildings, a lot of them homes.
Authorities said that at least 11 people are dead, with 100 injured, and as many as 1,500 homes and businesses have been destroyed. All three figures were expected to surge in the coming days as more information is reported.
Emergency lines were inundated with callers reporting smoke, prompting officials to ask that the public "only use 911 if they see actual unattended flames, or are having another emergency".
Authorities from the city of Santa Rosa urged residents on Twitter not to return to their homes until an evacuation order was lifted, despite images of destruction and devastation in the city spreading rapidly online and in the media.
Schools and colleges near the fires cancelled Tuesday's classes and two hospitals in Sonoma County were forced to evacuate, state officials said. Other residents are reportedly missing.

Kim Hoe, a 33-year-old tech worker from Penang, Malaysia, was staying at the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, which was gutted by flames. He said the power went out around 1am, and he and his colleagues started packing up when someone knocked on the door and told them to run.
"It's going to be a waiting game to see, when it's all said and done, what the impact is, but we're not just talking about the vines". It was full of smoke.
"The night before this, we had 60 miles per hour winds, which is the reason why you have such devastation here", Crum said.
Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa treated about 50 patients, mostly for minor injuries and smoke inhalation. Two were in critical condition and one was in serious condition.
Even Tuesday, firefighters and homeowners battled hot spots.
October has generally been the most destructive time of year for California wildfires.
