Tuesday morning many are left mourning the loss of loved ones and over 1500 businesses and homes in Northern California. The wildfires, which have been going since Sunday evening, have totally destroyed Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties (wine country) and prompted over 20,000 evacuations. No movie could ever depict the tragedy of this moment, the images are that surreal!
Recent dry spells and windy conditions have contributed to the fires. California Authorities are also reporting that despite the emergency proclamation issued by the governor on Monday, hundreds of people have since been hospitalized for fire related illnesses and injuries. Although there seems to be no end in sight, we all pray for peace and healing in this troubling time. Also, a huge thank you to all of the firefighters and first responders saving lives and working hard and fast to remedy this situation.
