More frequent, severe wildfires threaten California’s growing logistics networkEverstream Team
In 2020, California lost 4,257,863 acres to fire. That came from 9,917 incidents, and damaged or destroyed 10,488 structures in one year. This year, wildfire season is expected to be worse.
“California has always had fires,” but the number of days with favorable fire conditions like high winds and low relative humidity doubled over the past three to four decades, said Jon Davis, chief meteorologist at Everstream Analytics.
