The record breaking wild fire in California- Another form of nature's fury?Every year in the beginning of Fall, we hear the news about wild fire in California state and people are asked to evacuate to safe places. I stay in California and every year we get this alert message and keep our essentials ready to evacuate our house at any time. We had seen ashes flying around our places and smoke covered sky. The air gets polluted at higher rate and mask is compulsory to go anywhere outside our house.
This year, the same has happened. Though the fire break out has already happened in few other parts of California, today it had happened near our city. Today the sky looked orange because of the reflection of the wild fire.
All these made me feel that this year fire is not as same as previous years. So when I checked the news, I understood that I am right. Yes, this year, the wild fire had already burnt 2.2 million acres of land, which is a new record.
Since California is considered as a fire-prone area, Government has taken precautionary measures already. But nature has its own plan and wild fire is something out of control. So its spread is almost unpredictable.
Do you have any idea why nature has different plans for different areas? Let us leave the topography apart and look into factors why nature unleashes her fury in different forms in different places.
