40 People Have Died In California Wildfires Which Created $65 Billion In Damage

October 16. 2017

40 people have been confirmed dead in wildfires that have been raging in California. Released estimates reveal the wildfires have created $65 billion dollars in economic damage, regarding homes and businesses that were destroyed. The historic wildfires have devastated an already struggling California, which is already heavily in debt.

The fires still have not been contained, but firefighters are working hard round the clock with the goal of complete containment. Congress has allocated money for disaster relief in America, which has been battered by several weather events that created over 300 billion dollars in damage. The wildfires have left some people homeless, which entitles them to federal aid money. I send my condolences to the family members of those who died in the fires.
