this one really shows the devastation, assuming those were all houses before, looks like a tornado hit

EDIT: might have been a mobile home park...

Such horrendous damage!! So many people affected by this wildfire.

Let's hope they can get it under control before more death and destruction occur.

It's been a bad year so far for natural disasters. What's next?

Volcano eruptions.

The already posted photo is more dramatic when you see the before and after. It is amazing that most of the pine trees survived.

Start setting money aside for the next disaster - Homeowners Insurance Increases.

In a year that has brought us three devastating hurricanes, the guttural reaction to fire makes this seem so much worse.

I'm thinking that being close enough to take some of those shots is just too close! Scary!

While loss of human life and livelihoods are primary, I wonder how many pets were in those homes. Not to mention the wild critters living in the hills.
