Transcript for Hurricane-strength winds fuel Southern California wildfires
Our senior meteorologist rob Marciano is on the scene at that creek fire and, rob, these flames exploded so suddenly and they're moving at a terrifying speed. Yeah, explosive. As Marcus mentioned winds laying down for now but the damage has been done. Several homes completely destroyed. The force from the fire and the wind blowing out some of these walls. The water main in this house is ironically broken and spurting water. This portico the only thing left standing, the wins blowing to hurricane force moving those flame as long at an alarming rate of 55 acres per minute. That's like a football field per second. And it's not just the wind, extreme dry conditions, low humidity and in the rainy season right now. We should have two inches of rain since October 1st. A tenth of an inch. We should have 20 times that. Firefighters getting up after getting some rest and know it will be a long day and night ahead. Our hearts go out to the people who lost homes but tonight the next round could be worse than the last. Sorry to hear that.
