CA fires Horror

OMG!!!Looks like a war zone.I really feel for those people who are being effected by the madness called a wild fire.Theres nothing anyone can do,I guess once those fires are headed your way.Now of course,if you have dry conditions,(no rain),fires are gonna start,that's just the way it is.However,if it does rain a lot all of a sudden,it may lower the strength of the fire,but with no trees,and loose soil from the ashes,you will most likely get bad land slides.Good luck to all.And RIP to all the victims too.

Not to detract from the real losses here, but I find pics like this fascinating. Haunting and sad, but I still like looking.

Oh man,that's hard to look at.The cars with the pink,is that from the chemical that the fire planes drop?I Saw a video of them dumping a ton of this pink dust on the fires.

Yeah, that's the fire retardant. I don't believe it causes any permanent damage, so that cars (and truck) should be able to be cleaned to their pre-fire condition.

Man,whole neighborhoods burned down to the ground?That is something I have difficulty picturing,living on LI.Although back when Sandy hit NY,parts of entire neighborhoods burned to the ground.But that was because of electrical,man made issues,and not a forest fire.Good luck to everyone out west dealing with this tragedy.

If you think the pics are bad, try seeing it in person. I wasn't in California, but I was in Fort McMurray a couple of years ago when it was on fire. Our company has a branch up there, and being very involved in the community meant that when it came time to assist, it was all hands on deck. A lot of us headed up to assist in whatever ways we could. Seeing this kind of stuff in person really shakes you.

 

This first pic is taken from our parking lot. Those Jeep Patriots in the foreground were delivered to the branch that morning, about 30 minutes before the evacuation notice went out. Somehow, we had zero damage to our building or vehicles.

And some of the neighbourhoods.

Heard from a local guy that his brother was trying to get out with his family and pets. His wife was following him while he and the dogs and cats were in this 67 GTO when traffic came to a stop. Everyone was told to leave their cars and were loaded onto a couple trucks and the Guard hauled them out via a fire road because the road was overtaken by the fire. He said they had to leave their dogs loose because they weren't very people friendly but the cats were in carriers. Really sad. The car was his High School graduation present from his dad and was still all original.

But as he said, those are only things. Maybe can't be replaced but better that than one of the family!

Said they had very little warning to evacuate!
