Update: KPBS is back on the air, on their own frequency. Mucho
appreciation goes out to FM94.9 fir providing airspace for palatable news broadcasts.
I just wanted to post this since I find that some people come this way from Google searches for random things...
If you have found that KPBS has been knocked off the air, they are now broadcasting on 94.9, who has generously given their airwaves over to KPBS for the day.
I heard Tom Fudge (I think it was) saying that a fire went up the mountain where their repeater was but that they were still broadcasting, so everything must be fine. Then, a half hour later, I came back into the kitchen to find static playing. The DJ's have been invited to provide their excellent service on another station.
So, go listen to KPBS on FM94.9. It seems to be the most awesome place for news right now.
As of 11am today, a half a million people have been asked to leave their homes. That is 1/6 of the population of the county, the most in California history.
I just heard the whole town of Julian is now being evacuated. Hmmm... can't head west. Into the desert for them??
Again, this map is awesome and mostly up to date.
