U.S fire disaster, 42 dead, 220 missing; Trump’s twits Sparks Outrage



The United States of America has been struck by a deadly disaster which has resulted to death of many.
The Northern California’s Camp Fire, which has become the deadliest wildfire in United States history has claimed the life of at least 42 persons with 220 others reportedly missing.
Bodies recovered from the Ridewood Mobile Home Park on Monday.
Butte County Sheriff Cory Honea revealed that the remains of 13 additional people were located on Monday.
Honea said 10 human remains were located in Paradise.
Seven of those were found in homes and three outside.
Bodies were recovered in Paradise, California.
– 42 people have died in Northern California’s Camp fire
– 2 people have died in Southern California’s Woolsey fire
– 228 people are still missing
– 7,000 structures have been damaged
– 57,000 structures still remain under threat
– 149,000 people still under evacuation order
– 8,000 firefighters on the front lines.
The remains of some of the Camp Fire victims were found in burned-out vehicles (pictured) that were overrun by walls of fire as evacuees tried to flee by car in panic, only to be trapped in deadly knots of traffic gridlock.
Journeys that should have taken minutes ended up taking hours, with dozens of survivors telling how they jumped out of the cars and ran, carrying whatever they could.
Meanwhile, a tweet by President Donald Trump, blaming “gross mismanagement” for the devastating California wildfires is sparking outrage from top firefighters’ associations, politicians, celebrities and others.
In a series of tweets Saturday, Trump said the state’s deadly wildfires are a result of poor forest management and threatened to cut federal aid.
“There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor,” Trump tweeted. “Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”
