Newsom declares statewide emergency due to fires, extreme weather conditions

Tuesday, President Trump tweeted:

In California, Democrats have intentionally implemented rolling blackouts — forcing Americans in the dark. Democrats are unable to keep up with energy demand…

…Meanwhile, I gave America energy independence in fact, so much energy we could never use it all. The Bernie/Biden/AOC Green New Deal plan would take California’s failed policies to every American!

Governor Gavin Newsom has declared a statewide emergency due to fires, extreme weather conditions.

Governor Newsom declared “We are deploying every resource available to keep communities safe as California battles fires across the state during these extreme conditions.”

He added “California and its federal and local partners are working in lockstep to meet the challenge and remain vigilant in the face of continued dangerous weather conditions.”

Newsom’s order states “there are currently hundreds of fires actively burning during these extreme weather conditions throughout California.”

The order also states “the number of fires actively burning statewide, as well as throughout other Western states, has resulted in a strain on California’s mutual aid system, making it increasingly difficult for jurisdictions to obtain the necessary in-state and out-of-state firefighting resources to respond to these fires.”
