During and after a disaster, letting your family and friends know that you are safe and well can bring your loved ones great peace of mind. Safe And Well is a website operated by the American National Red Cross to help make that communication easier.

Here in Mendocino, Lake, Sonoma and Napa counties, where many communication systems are failing, people who are displaced by the wildfires have limited or no means to reach out to others.

Golden State Water Company on Monday advised about 500 Clearlake residents to boil water used for drinking due to possible contamination, the Lake County Record-Bee reported.

The precautionary boil water notice, affecting residents along Lakeshore Drive, north of and including San Joaquin Drive, was issued due to a temporary loss of pressure in parts of the Clearlake system, resulting from the local Sulphur Fire.
