Heavy rains and wildfires Lay Siege to more than 13 States in the US

Overheated air temperatures have brought heavy storms and wildfires to at least 13 states in the US since Monday.  We don’t expect wildfires in Alaska, but this time it happened 23 times, now one of 6 states dealing with wildfires. As of June 14, 40 large fires have occurred and burnt 1 million-acre of land in 6 states.

Severe storms hit more than 7 states from West to East, and at least a half-million residents are out of power. Yellow Stone National Park closed due to the heavy rain which led to flooding and left more than 10,000 people stranded. Yellowstone flooding hit a neighboring town and submerged houses in the State of Montana. The Governor of Montana has declared a state emergency.

A 10-year-old boy from Milwaukee, Wisconsin was swept away by the sudden rise of water. It was reported that his father and a neighborhood man jumped into the water to rescue him, but eventually he was found dead. Two people went missing in the sudden rapids.
