Northern California Wildfires Engulf Roads as Driver Perilously Tries to Escape
California is on fire … and these images show panic, despair and the scale of tragedy.
Check out these dash camera footage of the Hennessy fire in Napa County, Northern California, which burned roughly 200,000 acres and is only 7% contained.
The car speeds down the road, flanked by flames that almost lick the vehicle as the driver tries to escape. Among the dangers … trees falling to the ground after being engulfed in flames.
There are about 560 flames burning in the state … many have been set off by some of the nearly 12,000 lightning strikes. There are thunderstorms all around Northern Cal and sweltering temperatures, making fighting the fires nearly impossible.
The scale of the fires is unprecedented and, as Governor Newsom said during the DNC … this highlights the climate crisis.
And in the Gulf of Mexico … there are 2 tropical storms converging on the Gulf at the same time … something that has never been seen before in the region.
