California wildfires are largest in state history

Trump declared the California bushfires a major disaster, which allows the state and those affected to access federal funds.

"California wildfires are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren't allowing massive amounts of readily available water to be properly utilized". Jerry Brown's administration is sending water from "the North" into the Pacific Ocean. There they'll wait for the blaze to come to them while lighting "backfires" to clear vegetation between the fire line and the approaching blaze.

As of Monday morning, the blaze has consumed 273,664 acres and destroyed 75 homes, as well as 68 other structures, according to Cal Fire, the California agency responsible for fire protection. That doesn't happen. That just doesn't happen, ' he said.

In addition to the JBLM soldiers, National Guard troops from Oregon, California and Washington have been activated to assist with suppressing the wildfires, according to the Pentagon. That fire has so far killed seven people.

The twin wildfires, collectively known as the Mendocino Complex Fire, have together more than doubled in size in just the past four days and burned through 273,664 acres or 427 square miles of parched land - an area nearly the size of Los Angeles. Wildfire experts and local officials say the President's claims simply don't hold up.

More than 14,000 firefighters are fighting various fires across the north west of the US.

Lake County has been particularly hard hit by wildfire in the last five years.

"Unfortunately, they're not going to get a break anytime soon", Brian Hurley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center, said in an interview on Monday.

The weather forecast for the week ahead is not encouraging: very hot and very dry, the ideal conditions for the fires to expand.

"It might have something to do with forest management and the drought". We focused on the first portion of the tweet about water policy.

Gilless said Trump's language about water "being diverted into the Pacific Ocean", doesn't make sense, as water naturally flows to the ocean.

"Can be used for fires, farming and everything else", the president said. Think of California with plenty of Water - Nice! It's possible that Trump was referring to laws that prevent industries, power plants, farms, and cities from sucking up every last drop of Western rivers before they reach the ocean-but those laws safeguard firefighting water supplies as well as fish.

Firefighters have gained significant momentum on the River Fire portion of the wildfire and will continue to work on containment efforts on the Ranch Fire throughout Tuesday.

State authorities responded by saying California's water supply was not "diverted" anywhere.
