High-Resolution Satellite Images of the Northern California Wildfires

Today DigitalGlobe released high-resolution satellite images of the wildfires burning in Northern California. They have killed at least 21 people, destroyed at least 3,500 structures, and burned more than 115,000 acres. The imagery has been collected on 10 and 11 October 2017.
