    1. ...A series of August thunderstorms -- an unusual occurrence in Northern California -- awed with remarkable visuals especially overnight Aug. 15-16, but brought with them lightning strikes, often in dry conditions, that ignited hundreds of fires in arid wildland over the course of a week.

    As of Wednesday, there had been nearly 14,000 lightning strikes causing more than 700 new wildfires statewide that burned over 1.32 million acres (collectively, larger than the entire state of Delaware) with seven fatalities reported and nearly 1,700 structures destroyed, according to Cal Fire.

    ....the SCU Lightning Complex had charred 365,772 acres as of Wednesday morning in mainly rural vegetative land in parts of Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced and San Benito counties, according to Cal Fire.....

    2. THE CALIFORNIA wildfires have scorched one million acres as Donald Trump declared a major disaster and 13,000 firefighters battled the blaze that was visible from space.

    Responding to the growing emergency, the president issued a major disaster declaration to release federal aid.....

    3. Genesis 19:24
    Then the LORD rained down brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah--from the LORD out of the heavens.


    Deuteronomy 29:23-25
    And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass growth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:

    4. Instead of issuing a major disaster declaration which the wildfires completely ignore, Trump should take the disaster as a golden opportunity to perform a miracle to prove that he is really the Second Coming of God.

    The ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah certainly could not be larger than New York or Tokyo. The intensity of the so-called "brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah--from the LORD out of the heavens" could not be greater than "nearly 14,000 lightning strikes that caused more than 700 new wildfires statewide burning over 1.32 million acres (collectively, larger than the entire state of Delaware).

    Maybe with hindsight, Trump should not be so blasphemous as to claim that the Almighty God could be "hurt" by a lesser mortal. :)
