Due to its immense size, California is a dreamland for any type of adventure — whether you prefer big waves and sunshine or hiking, dense forestry, and wet afternoons. But with this wealth of diversity, California residents also endure a wide range of different natural disaster occurrences annually including wildfires, earthquakes, droughts, flooding, and mudslides. These annual damages cause up to billions of dollars in personal and property losses and leave thousands of residents displaced and uncertain about their futures. The best way to reduce damages caused by disasters is by using caring and dependable local restoration companies. At 911 Restoration franchise, we have several cleaning restoration franchise opportunities throughout California in areas like Fresno and Redding designed to restore people’s lives and provide comfort and assurance during hectic moments. With global warming causing more frequent and hazardous events, restoration professionals are needed now more than ever to minimize water, fire, and disaster-related damages.
Of the 50 states that make up the United States, California is considered the most disaster prone region due to its widespread natural disaster occurrences including wildfires, earthquakes, droughts, mudslides, heat waves, and flooding. Since 1953, 78 disasters have been reported throughout California. In California’s history, the worst natural disasters have been a mixture of earth, fire, and water. The most damaging disasters in state history include:
Recently, a slight five percent increase in annual moisture levels since 1990 have caused more severe flooding and mudslide instances. So far in 2018, unexpected mudslides in Southern California have damaged 1,415 homes and 240 structures, causing $421 million in damages. However, even with large-scale floods and mudslides, earthquakes are still considered the most damaging natural disasters to take place in California. Hundreds of fault lines are woven throughout California and while they contribute to the various landscapes and climates of the state, they also pose a continuous, ominous threat for California’s residents. In fact, two hundred fault lines in the state are presently considered hazardous and heavy shaking is expected to strike within the next 50 years, affecting at least 70 percent of the population. Additionally, every year, an estimated 11 small earthquake instances occur in the state.
The western U.S. has always been at an increased risk for experiencing wildfires due to dry climates and minimal moisture levels — in 2017, over 66,000 wildfires were reported throughout the region. In California alone, these flames caused up to $9 billion in disaster damages. Unfortunately, wildfires have now become a frequent, hazardous occurrence for residents throughout many parts of the state. For some perspective, six of the 10 largest fires recorded in state history have happened within the past decade. This year, nearly 7,200 fires blazed through the state causing $2.973 billion in damages, including fire suppression costs.
Of the wildfires experienced this year, two instances have been particularly harmful and extensively damaging, the Mendocino Complex Fire and the Carr Fire. The Mendocino Complex Fire was the combination of two wildfires, the River and Ranch fires, that destroyed just over 280 structures and caused $267 million in damage costs, $56 million of that total comprised of insured reports. This fire was considered the largest in state history, destroying 500 square miles and causing 20,000 people to evacuate. Just a few days before the Mendocino Complex Fire was started in late July, the Carr Fire, the sixth most destructive fire in state history, burned through Northern California. Over 299,000 acres were burned, completely destroying 1,604 structures, and causing $1.5 billion in insured losses.
But what is the main cause for this increase in blazes statewide, as well as other natural disasters in California? While the western region has always experienced dry conditions and extremely hot temperatures, global warming is considered by experts to be the main cause for the increase in occurrence and intensity of the California annual wildfires. Climate change has caused the area to become more hot and dryer than in past decades, and wildfires are started and are able to quickly spread due to the high temperatures. For example, July 2018 was the hottest recorded month in state history, with low moisture content in the air. Due to this fact, recent climate change has doubled the number of acres that have burned since the 1980s. With climate change only showing worsening effects throughout the state and country, wildfires will only become more frequent and widespread in the future.
