At Least 63 Dead and 630 Missing

CHICO, Calif. With 63 people confirmed dead in the Northern California wildfire, authorities today tried to winnow down a slapped-together list of the missing more than 600 names long, hoping many of them got out safely in the chaos over a week ago. But he said some of those unaccounted for may never be identified.

In a separate interview with Bloomberg late Thursday, Picker said "it's not good policy to have utilities unable to finance the services and infrastructure the state of California needs".

"We can't continue to bail them out if they're negligent", said Hill, a Democrat. "We just did up 500 quesadillas, and they're gone".

President Trump will get a firsthand look Saturday at the most destructive wildfire in California's history.

Over 12,000 buildings have been destroyed with the number of people missing doubling overnight due to the "extraordinary" scale of the operation.

This patch of California, a former Gold Rush region in the Sierra Nevada foothills, is to some extent Trump country, with Trump beating Hillary Clinton in Butte County by 4 percentage points in 2016. They'll be searching residences that have been burned.

The search area is wide and spread out. Any changes, he said, would need to be made carefully.

Families who lost their homes in the fires are going to have a very hard time finding a place to live, Butte County Housing Authority Executive Director Ed Mayer said.

"We're trying to follow up with those people who are calling in to find out if they've made any contact with their loved ones", Collins said.

They were headed for a Paradise, Calif., holiday, but a B.C. couple are instead spending their vacation in a Walmart parking lot helping wildfire victims.

But on the other hand, there are clubs like "Phoenix" or "San Antonio", which only once in the "regular" played overtime. Bookmaker offices, as a rule, estimate the probability of a draw with coefficients from 10.00 to 15.00.

"I told my parents, 'if you need to steal a auto, to get out and be alive, just please steal a vehicle, get out and save your lives, '" said Machado tearfully, "and for 24 hours I didn't know and I feared the worst". "Short-term, we are fine, but long-term we are not".

Picker was surprised hours later on Thursday to learn that PG&E's stock had surged over 40 percent in extended trading in reaction to his comments.

"There's grieving families, hurting families", sermonized Pastor Tim Ruhl, " and it means they survived the greatest catastrophe ever to hit in California, God has a objective in their life, great things are yet to come".

California state Senator Bill Dodd told Reuters it was "too soon" to speculate about future legislation that might provide relief to PG&E in case it is found liable for the Camp Fire.

The wildfire this time practically burned the town of Paradise to the ground and heavily damaged the outlying communities of Magalia and Concow on November 8, destroying 9,700 houses and 144 apartment buildings, authorities said.

Destinee said she has seen evacuees filing in, some in cars with their side panels melted off, with few belongings. The stomach bug causes vomiting, nausea and diarrhea.

Some 52,000 people have been displaced to shelters, the motels, the homes of friends and relatives, and a Walmart parking lot and an adjacent field in Chico, a dozen miles away from the ashes. The fear was that the company would be forced into bankruptcy by regulators as a result of the fire.

More than 230,000 acres burned in California in the past week.

Rather than relying on the masks, Beilenson said the county is urging people to stay indoors - a much more effective solution to the unhealthy air quality caused by smoke from the Camp fire. That's larger than the cities of Chicago and Boston combined.
