So they are letting the public know!
Fire Chiefs in Southern California announced they expect this Wildfire Season could be the worst in 100 years! They blame this extreme warning on rising temperatures, dry winds and drought conditions. In fact, they're preparing for 2,600 fires across 51,000 acres.
And perhaps the public is taking notice.
Yahoo! says in the 7 days ending 6/24/13 they saw the following:
- Searches for "Southern California Wildfires" were up +2,844%
- Searches for "Wildfires in Colorado" were up +380%
What the future holds, we don't know.
