A sign of the times, IMO. Do you remember what day the lighting storm rolled through where you live in Northern California? I'm in Oregon and we had a lightning storm roll through here last Sunday evening (I remember earlier in the day before the storm seeing thunderheads in the distance). It eventually brought rain where I live. Next day Monday was hazier than usual and off and on I'd see planes and helicopters with firefighting buckets fly by. Checked the news and sure enough the thunderstorm from the previous evening ignited a lot of new fires. Noticed just now there's an article on the topic on SOTT:Fwiw, we did have a lightning storm roll through but is that creatable? Maybe it is just another signs-of-the-times?
Hi Cleo. The Lightning rolled through, heading north into Oregon, on Thursday the 29th I believe. Some of the fires were not discovered until the 30th. Looks like the Cascades east of Roseburg has a few that started at about the same time.A sign of the times, IMO.

Lightning bolts struck the parched forests of southern Oregon hundreds of times in 24 hours, igniting some 50 new wildfires even as the nation's largest wildfire continued to burn less than 100 miles (161 kilometers) away, officials said on...www.sott.net
Current data base of fires in the USA (In Scope and Containment)Unfortunately NorCal is being hit really hard atm. There are numerous fires burning in our county, many 0% contained. Towns a few miles away are being evacuated.
The Dixie Fire’s rapid growth continued through Sunday night with more than 489,000 acres now scorched, according to Cal Fire. The fire was still only 21% contained.
The number of structures completely destroyed has now grown to 627, while 42 more were damaged. Cal Fire has more than 5,800 personnel assisting in the firefight.
The Dixie Fire—now the second-largest blaze in California history and largest single-fire blaze in state history—has been burning for 25 days.
The largest fire in recorded California history remains the 2020 August Complex Fire, which was comprised of multiple smaller fires and burned across seven counties, destroying 935 structures. It was a total of 1,032,648 acres.

Russia is among the nations facing increasingly harsh natural disasters, such as the massive wildfires in the eastern Siberian region of Yakutia. An RT crew joined a group of firefighters doing their best to contain the blazes.
Yakutia is a sparsely populated part of Russia, prone to experiencing long periods of dry weather in summertime. This creates the conditions for massive and difficult-to-control wildfires. This year the threat emerged in mid-spring and, over the months, became quite devastating.
Despite all efforts to contain and douse the flames, some 37,000 square kilometers are affected at the moment. Several villages had to be evacuated before being obliterated. Many people living in parts of Yakutia and neighboring regions have also suffered from smoke inhalation and other hazards affecting their communities.
RT's Dmitry Pauk teamed up with a crew of firefighters in Yakutia, who said their resources have been stretched thin by the sheer size of the disaster. The larger fires, which pose a greater threat, get the priority allocations of manpower and equipment. Brigades dealing with smaller ones have to make the best of what they have.
The crew that welcomed the RT crew is really low-tech, walking on foot in search of smoke and using shovels and manual backpack pumps where necessary. This intensive effort is usually enough to tackle flames on the ground. But there is always the danger of fire spreading across treetops, where it is fanned by the wind, becoming a much bigger hazard.
The destruction from the wildfires can be felt far from Yakutia. This week officials in Yekaterinburg reported that smoke from the Eastern Siberian region had traveled all the way to the major city in the Urals, a 3,000-kilometer journey westward, with the winds.
The Russian emergencies ministry said on Monday it had sent more people and hardware to Yakutia. There are now 4,070 people and 585 pieces of heavy firefighting equipment deployed on the ground there. The military is lending a helping hand, too, sending trucks, military engineering vehicles and personnel to assist the civilian authorities.
Wildfires in Russia and other nations are becoming a bigger challenge, as climate change tends to make some natural disasters more serious with each passing year. California recorded the biggest single wildfire in the state's history last week. Greece and Turkey are each currently waging difficult battles against fires.
On a couple occasions I had gut feelings that a good number of similar USA forest fires were started by diligent Deep State agents. Hollywood even gives a clue in the movie Those Who Wish Me Dead, where two MIC-assassins start a forest fire to drive their human targets into a trap.Speaking on Tuesday, Interior Minister Kamel Beldjoud declared that the government would launch an inquiry to find the “criminal hands” who are “behind the simultaneous outbreak of about 50 fires across several localities of the province.”
The screenshot could be misleading, because all the red dots become very tiny eareas when zoomed in, I tried it for Germany. I also tried unsuccessfully to find information about current wildfires in Germany, I don't know if there are any at the moment, and most of the red spots I zoomed in are located at densely populated or industrial areas, so I'm sceptical to what extend this map actually shows wildfires at all.Here you can see the extent of the fires raging across our earth.
