California: Mendocino Complex biggest wildfire in state history

California: Mendocino Complex biggest wildfire in state history

Jerry Brown's administration is sending water from "the North" into the Pacific Ocean.

Local officials have made clear they have not had any difficulty accessing enough water to fight the fires.

THE FACTS: That's not what state experts say.

Fire resources from across Dallas-Fort Worth will be heading to California to help crews combat the Mendocino Complex wildfire.

The tragic California wildfires are the subject of images taken aboard the International Space Station.

Instead, some White House officials admitted to being slightly perplexed at where Trump may have gotten the notion that California's long-running water crisis and a debate over how to divide limited supplies are somehow related to the out of control fires.

Officials say the twin fires threaten 11,300 buildings.

He was the seventh person to die in that blaze, which has scorched more than 160,000 acres (64,750 hectares) in the scenic Shasta-Trinity region north of Sacramento, including two young children and their great-grandmother whose home was overrun by flames, and two firefighters.

Firefighters had managed to contain 45 percent of the Carr blaze by Monday morning. The Mendocino Complex Fire has destroyed 75 homes and forced thousands to flee.

One of two wildfires burning miles apart in Northern California grew overnight, scorching dry vegetation in rugged terrain.

Cal Fire online records show a growing number of wildfires in recent years. As Trump alluded to in his tweet, experts have urged state and federal forestry officials to move quickly in clearing swathes of dead forests due to their added fire danger. "It's pretty doggone hot and dry, and it's going to stay that way".

A day later he posted another tweet about water being "diverted", and he said Gov. He also claimed water is "foolishly being diverted into the Pacific Ocean". "Can be used for fires, farming and everything else". Fast Federal govt. approvals'.

President Donald Trump responded to the devastation on Sunday in a tweet that was met with backlash because it appeared to place blame on poor environmental laws rather than climate change.

At least 14,000 firefighters are struggling to contain the multiple outbreaks.

Experts say Trump is giving voice to Republican opposition to the state's progressive environmental policies by taking issue with state measures created to protect fish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta by allowing water to flow through the delta and the San Francisco Bay, then out to the ocean. "We have strong, erratic winds and what that's doing is blowing embers and it's spreading the fire", Capt. Thanh Nguyen, a spokesman for a Southern California fire department who's acting as spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire, said Monday.

Denham has spoken out to the Trump administration against what he sees as state efforts to "push more fresh water out to the ocean", Carlin said.
