Wildfires in California rages out of control; Killed 33
California’s wildfire has scorched 3.1 million acres of land so far. This part of the country is suffering from the dirtiest air. Los Angel is under tribulation due to the worst smog in 30 years and temperature is making things really lamentable, a recorded temperature of 125 °F. The fires in times of a pandemic which requires social distancing are complicating evacuation strategies.
In California, a prolonged drought over the past decade has mowed down millions of trees, turning them into potent fuel for the fires. Mountain regions that are normally cooler and wetter have dried out more rapidly in the summer, adding to the potential fuel load. Climate scientists had forecast that western wildfires would grow in size, scale, and impact.
