Los Angeles Might Soon Be Surrounded by Deserts

Written By David D'Angelo on Tuesday, September 1, 2009 | 9/01/2009

Several wild fires are now raging in Los Angeles. In recent years the whole of California particularly Los Angeles was in a continuous threat from raging wildfires due to the very high temperature in the area. Wild fires which tend to burn thousands of acres of forest are believed to be one of the most serious effects of Climate Change. The recent fires already burned more than 164 square miles or about 105,000 acres of the Angeles National Forest. Temperature were as high as 100-102 degrees last Tuesday.

So far only 5% of the rampaging fire was contained. The fire also threaten Mount Wilson, home to at least 20 television transmission towers, radio and cell phone antennas, and the century-old Mount Wilson Observatory. It also houses two giant telescopes and several multimillion-dollar university programs in its role as both a landmark for its historic discoveries and a thriving modern center for astronomy. If the flames hit the mountain, cell phone service and TV and radio transmissions would be disrupted, but the extent was unclear.

So far 53 homes were destroyed including some forest cabins. Around 2,000 families were also evacuated in the apparent increasing threat of the greatest fire yet to hit Los Angeles.

Here are some more footage from the scene:
