Northern California area would be blessed with upcoming rains the thing that would help firefighters to contain the blazing fires from California's wildfires; however, officials are fairing that the storm would pave the road for deadly mudslides.
the death toll was raised to 81 people, while more than 870 remain missing as a result of the Woolsey Fire and the Camp Fire, the deadliest wildfire in California's history.
authorities are worrying that the rain would delay the process of finding missing victims, the possible coming of mudslides would make rescue missions even harder because flood would wash away buried victims and would prevent cadaver dogs from tracking the scent of the deads.
Meteorologists predict that the area could see up to 6 inches of rain through Saturday, with the worst of it coming Thanksgiving night.
The effects of the Camp and Woolsey fires was very extreme to the communities they have destroyed. Smoke from the fires has made its way more than 3,000 miles across the U.S. to parts of the East Coast. People in New York this week saw smoke in the sky as it travelled in an arc across the country and made its way out over the Atlantic Ocean.
the Camp and Woolsey fires have burned 250,280 acres and destroyed 20,074 structures. Approximately 4,000 firefighters are fighting the blaze using 305 fire engines, 37 bulldozers, 80 hand crews, 42 water tenders and eight helicopters.
