Unseasonably Dry and Warm weather causes Wildfire in CA

Several wildfires occurring on Northern California on Tuesday were most likely due to powerful winds, warm and dry vegetation in the middle of winter according to Weather.com.

More than 270,000 homes and businesses were out of power and about 1,250 people had to evacuate from Santa Cruz County. These wildfires have already consumed more than 200 acres off State Road 166 in the Wind Wolves Preserve, about 95 miles northwest of Los Angeles, the Kern County Fire Department stated.

National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for Los Angeles, Ventura Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties through Tuesday night. Yosemite National Park is closed due to downed trees and power lines.

RV travelers moved out from their temporary settles where they parked at the camping sites, and temporary evacuation center was set up at Corralitos Community Church. Several trailer-trucks toppled over in the high winds in the road sides.

As variant Coronavirus began its spread in the US, and with a current death toll of nearly 400,000 in U.S., these unexpected and unseasonable fires bring more unbearable situations that people can’t avoid.
