As USA battles to control the West coast Wildfires, East Coastal regions braces for another calamity.
Several unprecedented wildfires raging on the West Coast California for weeks have killed at least 35 people so far. Over 4.6 million acres of land have been devastated and ecology completely destroyed. The lack of rain has exacerbated the conditions resulting in record-breaking temperatures in different parts of the USA.
The smoke from the wildfires has been swept eastward and upper states by a heavy gush of wind. Thick smokes have engulfed Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. The fire has ruined entire towns and authorities are still working to bring it under control.
As the USA battles to extinguish the wildfire that engulfed West Coast California, eastern coastal regions are preparing to be hit by another natural calamity, Hurricane Sally.
A category 2 Hurricane Sally moves closer to the Gulf Coast of the USA, bringing surging water and heavy rainfall. Experts predict heavy landfall and the hurricane to strengthen as it hits the coast. Floods up to two feet is being predicted and possibilities of Tornado to hit in Tuesday evening.
With the astounding wind speed of 155 kph (100 mph), Hurricane Sally threatens the region. The National Hurricane Centre has warned the coastal region of the potential for Sally to reach category 3 and bring in catastrophic damage. The authorities have asked people to evacuate and stay alert about the emerging Hurricane.
Hurricane Sally will be the second hurricane to hit Louisiana in less than three weeks.
