The sheer magnitude of this fire! The city of Paradise is all gone. The closest city of Chico, half an hour away, is busting at the seams trying to absorb 50,000 Paradise evacuees. According to Fr. Ian: "All of Paradise residents are here in Chico." Chico population is est.100,000.
RACS sent $5,000 this morning to begin the process of helping our brethren in need. Whatever you send to RACS will be targeted to those displaced, hungry, cold, and next week – wet.
