Please pray for the victims of fires in the Western USA

Postby Maria » Sat 28 July 2018 7:15 pm

All of California is suffering right now from the fumes from burning chemicals and pesticides found in garages and kitchens, and from the ash, the smoke, and the fires that are being whipped by high winds.

Please pray for us.

"REDDING, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters battling a huge wildfire in Northern California kept it from doing more damage to the city of Redding but three smaller communities were in danger as flames closed in and residents packed up to leave."

That scene is appalling !

What is this about the Mendocino fires raging [ as of a few days ago - headlines about that disappeared. Were these stopped or just dropped out of the news ? ] This fire or fires were supposed to have burned vaster areas - but i guess unpopulated.

Here is live footage of the devastation caused by the Carr Fire in Northern California (Redding, California). Homes with stucco sides and ceramic roofs were the only ones left standing in more wealthy neighborhoods with 1/2 acre plots. In more highly densely populated areas with only five feet to ten feet between homes, the destruction was far worse.

Again, please in your charity, pray for us. The skies in Los Angeles are a greyish-red due to all the smoke from the adjacent fires.

I did watch that video back when Maria recommended it. The footage of destroyed homes, one after the other down so many streets, was deeply alarming.

What on earth is a ceramic roof ? Maybe our Churches and other buildings need them to withstand any fire ? Also stucco on the exterior walls makes a big difference, it seems.

How do these two building materials keep a fire out ? That sounds important to find out about.

Maria, how is the LA sky this week ?
