Cali is Burning

Postby gman313 » Nov 9th, 2018, 5:09 pm

California is a mess. A town of 30,000 has been eliminated and all of Malibu is trying to flee a wall of hell. The worst day in the OK mountain park fire is like a campfire compared to what they're experiencing. WOW

Or,

They have been in drought for too long and are mismanaging their water systems, allowing all kinds of waste to happen.

Or just drought.
Here I thought there was nothing lower than a snakes belly in a rut in a ditch. I was wrong.

I was watching two screens worth of the Woolsey fire today. At one point they were recording a RH value of 2%. That's the fire that also burned through the Rocketdyne Research site (not exactly good news) and put close to 100,000 folks on the move. The entire city of Malibu is under a mandatory evacuation.

Californians are lazy useless types. Land of fruit and nuts. They have emergencies if it rains. If it snows. If its hot or cold. Always needing help.

Support for the brave ones. The fire fighters and first responders. The hill billies staying behind to fight the good fight. To the ones who flee. I dont blame them. This fire looks horrific.

Pacific Gas & Electric Company says it will cooperate with any investigations stemming from a massive wildfire in Northern California.

The utility told state regulators Thursday that it experienced a problem on an electrical transmission line near the site of the blaze minutes before the fire broke out. The company said it later observed damage to a transmission tower on the line.

PG&E spokeswoman Lynsey Paulo said Friday the information was preliminary and stressed that the cause of the fire has not been determined.

The fire has killed at least nine people and destroyed more than 6,000 homes. It forced the evacuation of roughly 30,000 people in the town of Paradise, about 180 miles (289 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco.

Driven by 50- to 60-mph winds, the flames jumped south across the 101 Freeway in the Liberty Canyon area early Friday, sending it on a course through Malibu and its exclusive celebrity enclaves -- Caitlin Jenner'shome was reportedly among those destroyed. It was unclear how many homes were lost as the fire relentlessly advanced, but on-scene crews reported dozens of structures burning in various canyons. There also were reports of flames ripping through an apartment building and a mobile home park, along with people calling authorities to say they were trapped in burning structures.

300,000 evacuated...

Evacuees are turned away from overflowing shelters as more than 300,000 residents are told to leave their homes and unrelenting flames reduce entire California communities into ashes and nine are confirmed dead

To be fair. Everything is wasted in Cali. Why not forest service money. People from there are mostly useless. Entitled lazy sacks of excuses. . Trump is likely tired of the nonstop bs out of California. Constant states of emergency. Always bankrupt. Moral and fiscal.

Families Search for Missing Loved Ones Amid California Fire Chaos

After the deadly and fast-growing wildfire began to threaten his hometown Paradise, Calif., on Thursday, Al Silva got in his four-door Buick sedan and fled west.

His family made contact with the 91-year-old on Thursday night, when he was at a parking lot in Chico, Calif., Mari Irby, Mr. Silva’s great-niece, said.

And then, silence ...

California is responsible for 12% of the US GDP, and about half of its produce. California alone would rank among the world’s top countries by economy. Put your partisan blinders away. You’re celebrating the suffering of people.

That’s a lot of people you’re grouping into a “useless” category. I don’t want to derail the topic but I’m sure, just like any town in BC or Canada, they have their share of hard working people.
