As Sonoma Country continues a mandatory evacuation, the local TV station stays on the air to document the horrific wildfires in Santa Rosa. The death toll continues to rise, with the latest number at 31 and more than half of those are in Sonoma County alone.
With mandatory evacuation orders still in place, many residents in the affected areas have been warned not to return to their homes until further notice.
“Life is more important than property,” Sonoma County Sheriff Robert Giordano said at a press conference Tuesday.
He said he thinks the wildfires will be “one of the worst natural disasters in California history.”
