Nowadays, US President Donald Trump is on California visit to survey the deadliest wildfire in the state’s history which has claimed at least 76 lives.
US President Donald Trump called the scene of destroyed paradise town as sad.
The Camp Fire in northern California has brought huge destruction for both building infrastructure and human life. More than 1,200 people are still missing with fluctuating figure.
In the destroyed town of Paradise, Mr. Trump called the scene of destroyed paradise town as sad. He also repeated his dubious claim of accusing poor forest management.
Donald Trump accused poor forest management of deadliest wildfire.
He commented: “We do have to do management maintenance and we’ll be working also with environmental groups. I think everyone’s seen the light. I don’t think we’ll have this again to this extent.”
According to experts, weather, climate change, and population shifts are the main causes of such a destructive wildfire.
Firefighters are also confronting with several other flashes beside the Camp Fire including the Woolsey Fire near Los Angeles. At least three people have killed in Woolsey Fire.
The air quality of northern California has become the worst in the world. Many people are suffering illness of outbreaks of the norovirus at shelters.
Forecasters have predicted the heavy rain in the area next week which will douse the flames. However, it will also cause mudslides and flooding on hillsides stripped of vegetation.
Governor Jerry Brown and his successor Gavin Newsom welcomed the US president and have argued with Mr. Trump over the wildfires.
Governor Brown said on Twitter: “Now is a time to pull together for the people of California.” Mr. Trump admired the efforts of Paradise Town law enforcement, politicians and rescue teams for searching survivors on the ground.
He said: “This is very sad to see. As far as the lives are concerned, nobody knows quite yet. Right now we want to take care of the people who have been so badly hurt.”
Mr. Trump, Governor Brown, and Governor-elect Newsom also visited the Woolsey fire affected area in southern California.
He further added: “I have a strong opinion. I want a great climate and we’re going to have that and we’re going to have forests that are very safe.”
