Texas Wildfires February 2024

Real time posting on 2/29 from the perspective of geospatial data —

Athena has an unusual perspective on wildfire risk. Athena’s conditional and geospatial intelligence algorithm creates profiles which make it easy to understand the wildfire risk 12 months in advance. When fires occur, we often respond “Wow” to the accuracy of the model.

We will be posting throughout today, with insights and images from our model, just as we did yesterday.

Most wildfire models (the risk models used by insurance companies, and the fire simulation models used by firefighters and organizations) are based on the US Forest Service’s WHP and satellite data. The Athena team has more than a decade of experience with geospatial data, primarily in agriculture, where satellite data is insufficient to understand vegetation.

As of 1:00 PM Pacific time

Texans may be in luck. According to inciweb.gov it has started to snow over much of the Smokehouse Creek Fire.

Yesterday, the wind was causing spread to the east, into Oklahoma. Now the wind has shifted southward.
