1 CA Burning: Death Toll Rises To 66, With More Than 600 Missing
As firefighters start gaining ground on the fires in California, new information reveals the true devastation at play. Officials have confirmed that the remains of seven more victims of NoCal’s Camp Fire have been found. That brings the overall total of people killed to 66. But now, police have also updated the list of missing – or “unaccounted for” people – while it was 130 on Wednesday, it’s now 631. Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said the increase is because they are now including anyone who called 9-1-1 when the fire first arrived. They are hoping most of those people are simply displaced and will contact them so they can take their name off the list. Honea said they have tentatively identified 53 of the victims, but are waiting for DNA confirmation.
2 Northeast Gets Hit By Deadly Snow Storm
One of the first big winter storms of the season has snarled traffic, closed schools and caused deaths. The 900-mile wide storm, which stretched from central Alabama and stomped into the Northeast is being blamed for several deadly traffic crashes as the storm moved eastward. Officials say that two people were killed in a Mississippi bus crash, with other deaths taking place in Arkansas, Indiana, Ohio and Maryland. As the nasty Nor’easter moves out? More than 300-thousand people are without power – and more than five-thousand flights have been delayed or cancelled. As for what’s next…expect delays and cancellations. And if your travel has any sort of movement east? You’d do well to check with your carrier before heading to the airport.
