Apple to Donate to Southern and Northern California Fire Relief Efforts

Friday
Apple plans to donate to fire relief efforts in Northern and Southern California, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced on Twitter this morning.

It continues to be fire season in California, and right now, the dry, windy weather has led to three major fires in the state. The Camp Fire, north of Sacramento, has burned upwards of 70,000 acres, with residents of Chico and Paradise being evacuated. Many homes have been destroyed in Paradise, California.

In Southern California, the Hill Fire and Woolsey Fire are raging in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The Woolsey Fire is approaching Malibu, a well-known area of Los Angeles, and residents are being evacuated. Upwards of 75,000 homes in Ventura and Los Angeles counties have been evacuated and some structures have been destroyed. Other, smaller fires are also impacting other areas across California.

Santa Ana winds are expected to continue through Friday and into Saturday, with a second round of winds forecasted to start on Sunday through Tuesday.



Apple often provides disaster relief aid. Late last year and earlier this year, Apple donated several million towards fire relief aid for other fires that impacted California.
