Devastating Wildfires

I just read this today and it is just terrible. There are large wildfires in the Texas Panhandle which are taking time to control. Now they say that one wildfire has grown into the largest blaze in the history of Texas. There are at least two people dead, and property, and structures in ashes. The Texas Governor Greg Abbott has called this “utter devastation” in the Panhandle region. It breaks my heart to think of all the damage, the people burnt out, and particularly the wildlife. I am keeping all concerned in my prayers. To read more and see photos:

Oh no! Pretty early for wildfires isn't it? I guess anytime it is windy though..it's a concern.

@snowy22315 since this is so bad I think it might be human-made which would be even worse,

@RasmaSandra I’ve wondered that as well. I hope not. But it has happened before, as we know. So much damage and heartache.

I'm so sorry to hear about the devastating wildfires in the Texas Panhandle. It's truly heartbreaking to learn about the loss of lives, property, and the impact on both the people and the wildlife. The enormity of the blaze, now the largest in Texas's history, is truly alarming. Your empathy and concern shine through in your message, and it's heartening to see your commitment to keeping everyone affected in your prayers. Natural disasters like these affect not just the physical landscape but also the lives and well-being of so many. If there's any way to contribute or support relief efforts, it might be worth looking into local organizations or initiatives that are aiding those affected. Together, as a community, we can offer comfort and assistance during these challenging times. Sending thoughts of strength and resilience to everyone dealing with this difficult situation.

Yes, the wildlife always hit me strongly when these devastating fires commence. I hope they can get it further under control and quickly. When heat hits they are sunk I would think.

I am so sorry for the people of the area. I remember when there were wildfires burning in Canada here last year, it hurt so much to see it on the news that my beloved country was going up in ashes and it seemed like everyone in the world was complaining. I hope that they are able to contain the fires soon.

@Juliaacv a situation of fires occurred last year in Latvia and since it was an unusual and rare occurrence they needed not only help but knowledge as to how to handle the situation.

This is also something we should always be cautious about in the mountains.

I hope the fires can be contained and not spread to other areas. It's a bit too early for wildfires.

Wildfires in the past few years have devastated homes and wildlife. I wish we could do something about it.

I have been watching it on the news & it has destroyed a lot of land in it's path, I heard they had it under control but it is horrible that ANY fires destroy peoples lives like they do, & it's never easy starting over without help.
