President Trump has approved a declaration of major disaster due to widespread fires in California.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will assist state, tribal and local recovery efforts. Funding for emergency work is available to the counties of Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Sonoma and Yuba.

Federal Coordinating Officer, William Roche, said in press release that additional designations may be made at a later date if warranted by the results of damage assessments.

Red Flag warning remains in effect through Oct.12, due to high-risk weather conditions. Cal Fire urges Californians to “be extremely cautious, especially during periods of high fire danger.”

Damage assessments in other counties will continue.

“Cal Fire is inspiring the nation, and we stand with them with great admiration and appreciation,” said Vice President Mike Pence in a press conference.
