MUST SEE: Stunning Images of California Wildfires Flood Social Media

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by these devastating blazes. 

Amid a global pandemic that threatens to displace millions of Americans, (if Congress can’t pass the necessary stimulus packages to prevent that), the State of California has now declared a state of emergency over a recent glut of wildfires.

The blazes erupted just days ago, and are affecting some of Southern California’s most iconic cities and breathtaking scenery.

A series of fast-moving fires in the San Francisco Bay Area and elsewhere in Northern California — many caused by intense lightning storms — exploded overnight, burning homes and causing thousands to flee.

The newest fires stretched from the wine country to the Santa Cruz Mountains, moving with ferocious speed amid an intense heat wave that also has brought rolling blackouts. Smoke from the fires has caused terrible air quality across the region.

Many of the fires were believed to have been caused by lightning strikes. Northern and Central California began experiencing an unusually active sequence of largely dry lightning strikes Sunday morning, the most widespread and violent in recent memory in the Bay Area on one of the hottest nights in years, according to Daniel Swain, a climate scientist with UCLA and the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

Twitter users took to the platform to share their images of this fast-moving disaster.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by these devastating blazes.
