For the third straight year, heavy winds and dry conditions have engulfed areas of Northern and Southern California in dangerous wildfires. These fires are characterized by their swift development that catches residents off guard in a manner reminiscent of the fire that destroyed Paradise, California a year ago.
As the Kincade Fire ravaged parts of Sonoma County impacted by fires two years ago, fires are threatening Southern California in an alarmingly familiar cycle that is making the consequences of climate change more concrete – and dangerous – every year.
In Northern California, heavy winds that contributed to the Kincade Fire still pose a threat to the area, even though that fire has been contained. High winds and no rain in the forecast for Southern California mean that the fire risk remains severe. As the crisis continues, residents who have never experienced fire risk may find themselves in danger. Scheduled blackouts, utilized to prevent fires, have the potential to create a second disaster. Residents who require refrigeration for medicine face an uncertain power situation, possibly imperiling their lives. Batteries and power generators are at a premium as power companies attempt to mitigate future disasters.
