Northern and Central California was again under siege Wednesday as Diablo winds fanned the flames of roaring, historic fires burning virtually uncontrolled. Fifteen firefighters were injured after deploying emergency shelters as flames from the Dolan Fire destroyed a fire station in the Los Padres National Forest on the state’s central coast, the U.S. Forest Service said.

      It’s a plan. Man made. Move everyone to areas and destroy all wildlife and sources of life.

    • Oh nooo 😓😓

    • What was your game plan, were there any fire fighters there at the time of evacuation? We had to evacuate for the eagle creek fire in 2017. Everything ended up being good for our home. A few days before the fire was in our back yard. We had firefighters evaluating our neighborhood seeing what houses could be saved. Ours had a 95% chance of surviving, but our back garages and our neighbors houses had something saying that if their house catches it’s too dangerous to fight it.

    • Green Gay Last year there was a wild fire in my city and my hill for my house was on fire that’s why I am scared again

    • vvToca Girlvv & Roblox you got an email?

    Geez where is smoky the bear🐻 when you need him?

  6. NorCal this morning is straight up Martian sky! Like in the middle of the night with a red hue.

  7. I just lost my home in Happy Camp California, the fire was just devastating last time I saw it and from what I heard it still is, so the family went to my dads aunts house and we are evacuating for the second day in a row, the skies are blood red and it is the scariest thing I have ever woken up too

  8. Praying for the future of this WORLD.. Somethings are to come and I wish the world would understand. LOVE EACH OTHER

    • Meanwhile, US is considering going to war with China to secure its Imperial dominance in the world. So much for the fakery pretension as the ‘beacon of humanity’ US has been lying to the world and its own people!

      @trueaudience the world’s governments everywhere are lying even hospitals etc. Reckoning will come

    • Cameron Stephenson

      You are painting a broad brush that dose not provide the nuance of reality, there is lying since eons of life, only the difference in level of degrees.

      China does not PRETEND or LIE to PRESENT itself as if its the gold standard of humanity and values, or imposes and forces everyone to abide by its values, way of life or political system. . Only USA is going around the world to preach and impose freeDUMB and demoCRAZY with wars!
      Westerners have engraved DNA in them as religious crusaders to force others to live by their beliefs and standards, such forceful nature is evident till this day, only in the name of ‘freedom and democracy’!

      China is NOT the master of propaganda, US is! US has mastered the ‘Art of Propaganda’ that fooled the whole world.

      Records and factual datas prove themselves that China is not a war addictive country. China is much more interested in mutual prosperity and peace.

    I woke up in san josee in fear of burning alive. Looked outside my window and the world is basked in this magenta hue

  10. I’m in Cali and the sky is orange! It looks like the apocalypse!

    • Goh Xim : so by your logic, the Bible belt states with the EF5 tornadoes are also hell as are the Gulf and Atlantic states with the Category 5 hurricanes. And with regard to God – every religion on the planet has a diety and each claims that theirs is the one true God (based on an ancient text of riddles) and that all others are damned. This would mean that a compassionate God would damn the majority of the people on the planet simply because they were born into the wrong religion. Find something in your book of riddles to explain that.

      On the same topic, it is SO rich that the pious Christians go to church week after week to receive the word of God after which they proceed to the front steps of the church to gossip about “that girl who gets around” or “that guy who is light in the loafers” or about the casserole that no one should eat because it was “brought by the n-word family”. Sitting there literally DISSECTING the Bible for passages that give hatred to the voice of God while utterly FAILING to comprehend the basic message of the book itself.

      These people who claim that they will be saved because they have accepted Jesus while promoting racism, xenophobia, homophobia and overall pathetic values. I’m a genuinely good person and that’s how I live my life – if there is any action that will “save me” it’s my life ON earth rather than some guarantee of future salvation.

    • David Medina google images of “direct energy weapons” notice how all the homes are destroyed but trees are left intact. It’s part of the United Nations agenda 21 land grab.

    • @Ed Tem : “UN Agenda 21”? Really? You must also believe in the QAnon Reptilian Agenda

    • It seems

  20. It’s just the beginning of the JUDGEMENTS OVER USA! As true as my Lord lives!

    Death to America, shout out from the throne! 📣 💣 ☢️ 💥 🔥

    USA has become a falling star! 🌠
    Forsake Her and let her down, the mighty, empire America, Babylon itself!

    “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
    And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

    For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

    And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

    How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

    And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
    And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

    The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

    The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

    For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

    Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

    And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

    And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

    Revelation 18:1‭-‬24 KJV

    •Bless..? God will send curses, disasters over You American, cause of your hypocrite worshipping of God in Heaven.

    God has spoken!

    /BEN, Prophet in the world, the only one 🗡️ 🛡️⚖️
