For many California wildfire evacuees, there's nothing left to return to

For many California wildfire evacuees, there's nothing left to return to

The weather is not working in fire crews favour, as Scott Jalbert, chief of Cal Fire's San Luis Obispo Unit, said on Sunday morning: "Sadly, with these winds, it's not over yet". Nine bodies were found in the immediate aftermath of the destruction, and the remains of another 14 were discovered in later searches.

Drought conditions have increasingly affected the state over the past decade, causing erratic fire behavior and making efforts to contain the flames much more hard.

The fire season, which started in early summer, is poised to break records for a second year in a row.

"There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor", Trump tweeted.

The Woosley Fire, which is affecting residents in Ventura and Los Angeles, has burned through 83,275 acres and was only 10 percent contained.

Evacuation orders have been issued to more than 250,000 people across California, with authorities urging residents not to ignore warnings to flee.

The 41-year-old, his pregnant girlfriend April Love Geary were a part of a group of celebrities who were evacuated from their Malibu homes on Friday. His Malibu home was destroyed.

Hot dry winds expected to blow until Tuesday whipped up the flames and heightened the urgency of evacuation orders, officials said.

More than 200 people are still unaccounted for, Honea said.

As many as 23 people have died so far in the catastrophic fires which have burned over 1, 70,000 acres of land. The flames descended on Paradise so fast that many people were forced to abandon their vehicles and run for their lives down the only road through the mountain town.

U.S. authorities say more than 8,000 firefighters are battling three large wildfires in California that have destroyed thousands of structures.

They estimate they will need 3 weeks to fully contain the blaze.

Firefighters used a respite from strong winds on Saturday to drop fire retardants to strengthen firebreaks.

The Poker singer tweeted out her prayers and condolences to everyone affected by the fire along with her thanks to the fire and police department for their efforts.

The president has previously blamed Californian officials for wildfires and threatened to withhold federal funding.

Meteorologist David Gomberg told the Los Angeles Times newspaper that fire tornadoes were possible.

That change has impacted the ability to move firefighting resources around the state, officials said. The report said there was no indication its equipment was involved in the fire reported two minutes after the outage.

"Managing all the forests everywhere we can does not stop climate change", Brown said.

Mr Trump's response to the fires has been criticised as unsympathetic and ill-informed.
