Miles de residentes de California se ven obligados a huir de sus hogares

August 19, 2021 - Los incendios forestales amenazan miles de hogares en California y llevan a órdenes y advertencias más extensas de evacuación, así como a cortes de energía para evitar que se inicien nuevos incendios en instalaciones eléctricas en medio de fuertes vientos.

The drought-parched region was expected to see red flag warnings for dangerously high winds and hot, dry weather through Thursday.

Those conditions have fed a dozen uncontrolled wildfires, including the month-old Dixie fire and the nearby Caldor fire in the northern Sierra Nevada that incinerated much of the small rural towns of Greenville and Grizzly Flats.

The Dixie fire is the first to have burned from east to west across the spine of California, where the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountains meet. It had burned more than 2,500 square km (1,000 square miles) and was only a third contained, AP said
