Are you staying in Agness now?
To: Grampa Dave
We are near the mouth of the Rogue. About thirty 'mostly bad road' miles from Agness. The last report has the Florence fire 3-1/2 air miles from Agness.
Florence and Biscuit fires are close to merging. The Feds have upgraded to a Type 1 (major priority) fire.
Red flag warning on weather - NE winds.
From the Patterson bridge (Highway 101 over Rogue River) you can see the smoke cloud rising upriver.
Brookings has another smoky day with soot falling.
Local radio says Highway 199 (Redwood Highway) closure will be long term.
