So said what damage your governor has done to california

i cannot believe you voted for this moron


Now I find out he signed a bill so that PG&E cannot be

sued but you the taxpayers have to pay for it.

Just wow

I can assure you that the vast majority of people up in this part of far Northern Calfornia did not vote for this moron.

 Quoting: Madame Royston


MR, after seeing this and other fires and knowing how vulnerable nearly the whole state is, are you fearful of fire? I believe that I would be.
 Quoting: thinking...


Also, I haven’t seen it widely reported on, but ifn 2008 Paradise had a bad fire that destroyed 74 homes. After that fire, I always felt a little uneasy driving up to Paradise in fire season...there had been much discussion and planning about evacuation routes and plans after that fire, because there were so few roads in and out. THere was a plan in place for this fire, but it was no match for it.

And, some people who lost their homes in 2008, rebuilt them, and just lost them again.

 Quoting: Madame Royston


I recall reading an article, which I may have even posted in this thread, that people in Paradise knew they would likely have another big fire. The same can be said for places like Malibu which has also had terrible fires. It takes a long time to drive in and out of those places and they're fire traps. I was just looking, last night, at pictures of a place called Malibu Lake. I was never aware of it when I lived. Intoxicatingly beautiful and all I could think of while looking at the pics was fire trap. It's like if this year's fire didn't get you, the next or the next after that will.

MR, I just looked through that photo album from the Humbolt fire. So sad. All the signs thanking firefighters and now, probably, all of those places are gone - and maybe some of the people, too. I wonder if the guy who posted that album made it out. His home and business are probably gone.

In Butte County, it smells heavily of smoke. For me, its hard to breathe outside (I have asthma) but not for my husband, although he figures it would be if he tried to exert himself.

BUT, it wasn’t even 1/10th as scary as the drives I’ve seen through the Camp Fire. THe road was much wider; made a huge difference.

Wow; indeed!

We are all talking about how it feels like “nuclear winter” here in Butte County; it’s about 20 degrees less than surrounding areas, so in the 50s, you can barely see the sun and it’s pretty dark. Hope it clears up soon for all the crops in this area (although most have already been harvested).

He reminded me of a pilot in a plane that's about to crash. Pilots are are always so good at remaining calm. Amazing daddy.

Until the fire, I'd never watched videos of people driving through them. It's terrifying. One minute it looks like you're out and the next another explosion of fire.

New numbers are coming in

Now reporting over 10,000 structures destroyed, over 8,600 are houses.

138,000 acres still only 35% contained.

Smoke has mostly been in the hazardous range throughout the valley

Spent today crying with a good friend when she told be about her son and grandson who got trapped by fire on 4 sides and called and told her goodbye; their lives were saved by some fire fighters who sprayed them and others with water in a field. My friend and her son both lost their houses and absolutely everything.
 Quoting: Madame Royston


Both a horrible loss and miraculous survival.

I don't know how people go about putting their lives back together after such tragedy. The older ones never will be able to.
 Quoting: thinking...


So true; many of the very old if they rented had no insurance.

My friend literally has had a light go out of her eyes. As to putting lives back together, where do you start? She says she will rebuild (as do most of my other friends who have lost homes; but practically how long does that take?). Plus Paradise (and Magalia and Concow) will never be close to the same again.
 Quoting: Madame Royston


I don't see any way for Paradise to recover. I don't the extent of destruction in Magalia or Concow which are much smaller, right? Probably none can recover. Imagine being someone whose home survived the fire. Then what? No town. No grocery stores, no garbage service, hospital, no doctors, no dentists, no veterinarians, no drug stores, no auto mechanics, just nothing that is part of a normal community. Life will only be fit for hermits. Why even bother getting utilities back on in such a condition? It would take many, many years to rebuild and then fire can come again.
 Quoting: thinking...


Sadly, I think you have the right of it. It’s pretty far down the hill to Chico for services/civilization. And how depressing to have so much destruction all around you.

My girlfriend, in Chico, who took in the lady and critters from Paradise, told me (couple of days ago) it was like 40 degrees in the morning. All of those people in tents must be freezing on top of being so traumatized.

I worry about my friend in Chico. I used to think being in a city provided some barrier to these fires but I don't think so, now.

 Quoting: NewGeneration2019



From that article:

"The housing crisis hit us hard like everywhere else," said Sarah Thomas, program manager of the nonprofit Chico Housing Action Team. "The vacancy rate in Chico is around 1 percent. Now that we’ve lost all these homes in Paradise, there are going to be more people struggling to find a place to live."

Despite the reality that about one in five Californians live in poverty, the median home value in the state is $544,900, and the median two-bedroom rent is $2,750, according to real estate listings site Zillow.

Before the fire started Nov. 8, thousands of lower-income workers and retirees took refuge in Paradise, where the median home price is $200,900, according to the U.S. Census Bureau data.

FEMA has promised help for qualified, displaced residents — up to three months assistance for homeowners and at least one month for renters.

"We do have the funds, and we will help out in every way we can," Gov. Jerry Brown said Wednesday.




WHAT? Why does a homeowner get three months of help and a renter just one and nobody can get on their feet within those time spans. Disaster upon disaster.

Article also mentioned the Red Cross. My friend in Chico, who is a nurse who's been working with evacuees, said the Red Cross has been worthless. they hand out blankets and pillows and tell people to sign up with FEMA if they want anything else. I despise the Red Cross and United Way. They bring in fortunes and just line their own pockets and that's it. About the equivalent of the Clinton Foundation. IOW, FRAUD. Why is it allowed???

Sadly, I think you have the right of it. It’s pretty far down the hill to Chico for services/civilization. And how depressing to have so much destruction all around you.

When I think of what I saw in Malibu and Laguna canyons, after the 1993 fires (I went and sandbagged after), I'm astounded how people rebuild. There is no way in hell I would not learn that lesson the first time.

I would feel safe in a place like Palm Springs, where you're getting into just plain sand but who wants to live there? It's the beautiful places that are the most dangerous.

Looks like that gorgeous Malibu Lake area that I mentioned earlier got hit by the Woolsey fire:

Yep, the prettier the area, the more natural disasters seem to abound.

Gosh, that Malibu Lake was a beautiful place!

Yeah, look at it in Google images. It was like the Garden of Eden or something!

Article also mentioned the Red Cross. My friend in Chico, who is a nurse who's been working with evacuees, said the Red Cross has been worthless. they hand out blankets and pillows and tell people to sign up with FEMA if they want anything else. I despise the Red Cross and United Way. They bring in fortunes and just line their own pockets and that's it.

yep, that kind of story is too frequent, there's not sufficient oversight of these charities taking place
