        2021 Drought Conditions Could Make California Wildfires Worse This Year

        2021 Drought Conditions Could Make California Wildfires Worse This Year
        Severe drought in the West and Southwest regions of the United States have residents worried about the potentially destructive fire season. Already, wildfires have burned around 14,000 acres in California in 2021, which is more than five times the acreage charred by the same time last year.

        It's a worrying trend that has fire officials taking a proactive approach -- from more funding to wildfire prevention to hiring additional crews -- after the state saw its worst fire season ever in 2020.

        New Coronavirus Detected In Patients and the Source May Be Dogs

        New, Infectious Coronavirus Is Detected In Malaysia – Possibly Coming From Dogs

        No one wants to hear news about a coronavirus. We are tired of it. But, the more we know the better we can try to live. This news comes from Malaysia where scientists have connected a coronavirus in dogs that might be transmitted to humans.

        As California and the West are falling deeper into drought and, with summer approaching, there is great potential for another severe fire season in 2021.

        As a disappointing wet season comes to a close and hope for spring rain fades, conditions are worse now than they were at this time last year in 2020, with exceptional and extreme drought now found throughout the region.

        In California, that doesn’t bode well, given that last year’s more moderate rainfall deficits, combined with extreme heat waves, ushered in a record-setting fire year. It brought 5 of the 6 largest fires in modern state history, 10,488 destroyed structures and 33 fatalities. Some 4.2 million acres were torched.
