More on Thomas Aquinas College - Keep Praying!

Article from AP News: Here

and some video coverage of the Day Fire

from the TAC website:

The Day Fire continues to burn just north of the Thomas Aquinas College campus. In accordance with the recommendation of Ventura County Sheriff’s Office personnel, Thomas Aquinas College has made the decision to evacuate the campus. There is no immediate danger to the students or the campus; this measure is precautionary.

The evacuation center for Thomas Aquinas College is Sacred Heart Church located at 10,800 Henderson Road in Ventura. The phone number is (805) 647-3235. From there, arrangements will be made to house students in the homes of faculty, staff, and alumni in the immediate area until the Sheriff’s Office recommends that it is prudent to return to campus, likely in the next day or two.

The evacuation has proceeded well, and students remain in good spirits. Regular updates on the Day Fire can be found at

That's my parish (Sacred Heart) where the students were evacuated to. Thankfully, the college has been spared any damage or harm, and the students have returned to the campus. 160,000 acres burned so far, but it's now nearly 50% contained.
