Donald Trump leaves Finnish leader puzzled with claim forests are raked

Donald Trump leaves Finnish leader puzzled with claim forests are raked”

Survivors and relatives of those caught in the fire in Northern California are using social media to get the word out: in some cases, to post that their loved ones were safe; in others, to plead for help.

"It's really very important for you to take a look at the list and call us if you're on the list", he said.

"The last five years, the fires have never been this bad", Brown said Sunday.

California's tragedy touched the heart of Pope Francis in Rome, where on Sunday he sent out "a special prayer.to those affected by the fires that are ravaging California".

Honea said among the dead was Lolene Rios, 56, whose son Jed tearfully told KXTV in Sacramento that his mother "had endless amount of love for me".

On November 10, he tweeted: "There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor".

"Those debris flows have the consistency of wet concrete and move faster than you can run", he said.

There are many ways to prevent forest fires, and President Donald Trump claims the Finnish president advised him on one such solution: raking.

"And they don't have any problem".

"Here we're looking for very small parts and pieces, and so we have to be very diligent and systematic", he said Friday.

Furthermore, Finland's President Sauli Niinistö's says he doesn't recall telling Trump his country rakes its forests.

Mr Trump is a noted climate change sceptic, and rejects it exacerbates the conditions which lead to fires.

Brown noted Sunday that the fires surrounding the now-destroyed town of Paradise, California, is surrounded by federal, rather than state, forests.

Before departing for California, Trump told reporters the forest management work should have been done years ago.

Scientists have said the growing frequency and intensity of wildfires in California and elsewhere across the West are largely attributable to prolonged drought that is symptomatic of climate change.

"His general sentiment is correct - that we need to manage fuels", said Yana Valachovic, a forest adviser with the University of California's Cooperative Extension program.

As previously reported, the number of victims of forest fires in California has reached 71 people, missing persons believe 1011. The Camp Fire in Northern California has so far burned more than 149,000 acres and destroyed almost 13,000 structures, while the Woolsey Fire in Southern California's Ventura and Los Angeles counties has burned 96,949 acres and destroyed 1,130 structures. "It's like total devastation", Trump said as he stood amid the ruins of Paradise, which has a population of about 26,000.

"Two of them were in the shelter", he said with a chuckle.

By late Sunday, raking-related terms were among the most popular Twitter hashtags and Google searches in the Nordic nation which is 72 percent covered by forests, predominantly of pine, birch and fir.

But with rain expected this week, local officials warned local residents about the risk of flash floods and mudflows near the burn area of the fire.
