Trump Sends Disaster Relief To California Wildfires, 43 Confirmed Dead With Dozens Missing

1

President Trump on Monday signed a major disaster declaration for the areas affected by the ongoing wildfires in California, following through on a request made over the weekend by California Gov. Jerry Brown (D).

The declaration orders an increase in federal aid to supplement state, local and tribal areas in Butte, Los Angeles, and Ventura counties.

“I just approved an expedited request for a Major Disaster Declaration for the State of California,” Trump tweeted on Monday night. “Wanted to respond quickly in order to alleviate some of the incredible suffering going on. I am with you all the way. God Bless all of the victims and families affected.”

 

The wildfire has killed 43 people, with nearly 230 people missing in Northern California. Officials say the fires are the most destructive in the state’s history.

  1. Can someone explain? As I was watching some clips of the CA fire and looking at pictures that were taken during the fire, there were houses that burned to the ground while trees surrounding it are still green. A van that’s officially burned with windows shot out while the houses and trees surrounding it are untouched. Other houses and businesses burned while trees surrounding it are untouched and still green.
