BBC News has reported that over 200,000 residents have now been evacuated due to the California wildfires outbreak. The number of people being asked to Leave their homes for safety reasons has nearly quadrupled on Thursday as a fifth fire broke out in Oxnard, Malibu, Huntington Beach and in the San Diego area.
Former Lakewood Worship leader Israel Houghton asked for prayer as he and his wife, television host Adrienne Bailon said they’d received notification from officials to evacuate from their Bel-Air home “We were just notified that our area is beginning evacuations. Please say a prayer for Adrienne Bailon and me, thank you,” Houghton asked. Israel further wrote on an Instagram story post along with a news clipping of a Los Angeles Times article about the fast-moving wildfires presently engulfing California.
“Praying for everyone in the Los Angeles area fires,”
The latest set of flames are being called “the Lilac fire” by officials and they have now burned through at least 150 acres. The National Weather Service predicts that the winds could diminish Friday into Saturday, in turn possibly slowing the fire down.
Please let us all remember to say a prayer of protection for all in Los Angeles.
God bless you
