Another Day of Fires with More to Come
Listen to/Watch entire show:
At least two people have died, many more have been injured, and at least 1,300 homes and businesses have been lost. But with more than a half million people evacuated, those numbers are bound to rise. President Bush has sent federal resources into the region and he’ll be here himself on Thursday. There is no sign of a let up in the extreme weather conditions that have Southern California burning.
Much of Southern California is on fire tonight with serious blazes in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. But once again, the worst of it is in San Diego County, where a half million people have been ordered out of their homes.
