    I've noticed that marinebio_guy lists his location as Catalina island, and I just heard there's a big fire threatening Avalon (the main town there). I don't know if he's there now, but everybody :fingerscrossed: for him, his lab, and all the Catalina residents... the radio said some homes and structures in town are threatened, so it sounds like things are pretty grim and it's not contained.
