It seems that every week there is some new disaster here in the United States. I just watched the news and saw the horrific fires in California. The last I saw was that 10 people were killed in them. I don't know what is worse, drowning in the hurricanes or burning in a fire. It is so horrible and I pray that there will be no more tragedies like these.

You are right. I hate to see the news any more but these days any news gets cut into the regular tv shows. It is just horrible all the things that are happening.

Both options are bad, you die and you die in a horrible way.

Both drowning in the hurricanes or burning in the fires is a horrific way to die.

Maybe it's time to stop reading or watching the news.

You are probably right but it is all around us and on television whenever we turn it on.

@ramapo17 That's why I don't watch tv anymore. I don't go to Facebook. When I'm on my computer, I'm just working or mylotting. The moment I get home, I don't turn on the tv, I open my laptop instead. If I want to watch my favorite shows, I do it online so there'll be no news.

Yes, it is sad. I think I heard that over 1,000 people were evacuated from their homes, and a lot of homes have been burned. I can't imagine how devastating loosing your home and all your things would be. I live in California, and the sky was literally orange today.

I was scratching my head at first when I saw the news, because California was coming off of their wettest season on record, yet the news reporters kept talking about the extended drought as being the cause of those horrific fires. But then I realized that it was southern California that was inundated with rain this year, and that these horrific fires are in northern California.

You are right. My cousins live in southern California and are not near any fires. Every time I hear about anything going on out there I get in touch with one of my family members.

I just found about about the fires in California after reading some of the discussions here. I hope things get better for the residents there.

I wonder whether we can prevent such disasters as we are progressing scientifically by the day. We should highlight the danger signs in terms of living dangerously at sites where disasters can happen more often - siva

Two words. Climate Change. Horrible what is happening in our world right now. We can still do something about it but we have to start now.
