RE: SHE'S A POWERFUL FORCE -- NATURAL DISASTERS

It's terribly sad and depressing.

My youngest sister takes the 405 to and from work, but she's off until February.

So many structures and homes burned and the So Cal fires are still raging from lack of rain and the high winds. Usually fire season ends in October, but not much is usual these days.

It really is. Heartbreaking :(

We were watching coverage of it early this morning and it was said the winds were expected to be around 70 MPH. Awful, just awful.

It's still raging and only 15% contained, despite the dedication and long hours put in by firefighters in California and neighboring states. One person has died, which is awful, but fortunately there haven't been more fatalities. Over 200,000 acres have been lost and 40+ retired race horses perished.

The fire is only a couple of miles from the Santa Barbara Zoo now. It was good to read that they have a comprehensive fire evacuation plan and have done a lot of practice drills with the animals.

It's surreal and so sad seeing a December wildfire ravaging coastal cities; helpless feeling. Hoping for a change in weather and quicker than expected containment. 30

I've heard a few people here talking about the horses, my boss is one of them. I'm thinking "oh Jesus God, please shut up". She wants to give me a play by play and my heart is breaking for the animals and the people who have lost everything. Such a terrible year of devastation :(

I think the worst way to die would be in a fire. They had bushfires in Victoria in the country a few years a go, and there were 200 people killed and there were a whole bunch of cars where they were on the road trying to escape but got caught in the a firestorm and it just showed all these horrible cars together just shells and all burnt out. The worst most terrifying way to die. The wildlife too suffers, because the flames move so fast, like koalas and other native animals, its scary and like hell on Earth.

California has definitely been put through the wringer over the last several months.

Droughts, fires, and now that we've finally gotten some much needed rain.........so far, 15 people have died and 24 more are missing in massive mudslides in Southern California.

I have a 8' retaining wall along the back side of my house, always get nervous when it rains like hell.

I bet; hope your place doesn't get damaged Biggie.

These mudslides are vicious. Drought and wildfires wiped out all of vegetation and trees, so there's nothing to absorb and slow the slopes from turning into massive fast-moving walls of mud.
