Humanitarian Issue – Northern California Wildfire Devastation

Padmini Arhant

The past weekend wildfire in Napa Valley, the wine country in Northern California affecting four counties devastated lives in that area. The fire engulfing structures, barns, cattle farm and everything it came in contact with in fleeting moments forcing people to flee for their life is tragic.

Although the cause is not known in detail, the destruction is catastrophic. When events like these happen in the form of hurricane, ravaging fire and earth shattering earthquake, life is reminded as fickle and unpredictable. As for nature’s act the wrath is tremendous and beyond human ability to gauge intensity.

During crises, human sentiments among concerned citizens and rescue team often rise to the occasion in reaching out to those in danger. The responsibility shared among people and firefighters as well as emergency crew is laudable. The state authority beginning with California Governor Jerry Brown mobilizing national guard assistance and all the way to the front line members response are valuable in saving lives and containing massive losses in the incident.

Hopefully, the insurance industry would do all required on their part providing necessary attention in restoring homes and lives to citizens some of whom understandably are in shock and dismay.

I convey my wishes to fellow Californians for strength and courage in dealing with extraordinary time of their life.  I have the victims and families mourning the loss of their loved ones in my thoughts and prayers for speedy recovery.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
