Counteless volunteers will devote their Thanksgiving scouring through ruins in heavy rain for the remains of victims slain in the deadliest wildfire in the history of California, with powerful winds with additional complication of mudslide.
The fire killed 83 people and 563 people still unaccounted for in and around Paradise, a community of about 27,000 people that was largely consumed by the supposed Camp Fire two weeks ago, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said.
Forecasters reveals that Volunteers moving through touched areas round Paradise, 175 miles (280 km) northeast of San Francisco, are expected to face heavy rains that may obstruct their efforts. Between 4-6 inches (102-152 mm) of rain was due to fall at the weekend.
Honea said on Friday at a news briefing, that the weather will not discourage approximately 830 people who have signed up to devote Thanksgiving brushing through ash and rubble for human remains.
Warehouses were opened in Chico to gave evacuees protection from the cold and rain as celebrity chef Jose Andres arranged to cook hundreds of Thanksgiving meals for escapees.
