8/21/20 -- A scorching heat wave, thunderstorms, fires, evacuations, blackouts, and an earthquake all hit the county in the past few days. Needless to say, it’s been a wild week.
Triple digit heat has been unrelenting in inland parts of the county, with high nighttime temperatures offering little relief. On Sunday, August 16, Ukaih tied it’s previous daily heat record of 107 degrees. Fort Bragg set a record the same day, reaching 79 degrees.
