Photos: Bad Colorado Wildfire

Firefighters are still working to stop the bad wildfire in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Colorado wildfire is known as Waldo Canyon Fire.

Waldo Canyon Fire has scorched 17,659 acres (7,149 hectares) and burned  about 346 homes.

It is the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history.

In Utah, the Rosecrest Fire has burned at least two homes in the foothills around Herriman.

And about 200 homes around the area are in danger if the fire spread.

This is a disaster.

I am very sad and sorry to the ones who lost their homes.

In June, there was a huge wide fire in New Mexico.

After declaring a “major disaster” in the state early Friday and promising federal aid, President Barack Obama got a firsthand view of the wildfires and their toll on residential communities. More than 30,000 people have been evacuated in what is now the most destructive wildfire in state history. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson)

U.S. Heat Wave Another: Disaster For Eastern U.S.

On July 2, 2012 the people in the eastern United States of America from Indiana to New Jersey still have no electricity to cool themselves during the very hot summer.

This is a great disaster.

First there were violent storms that knock down power, damaged cars and buildings and killed at least 13 people and now there will be no electricity for days.

It was reported it may take a week or more before the power can be restored for everybody in the effected areas.

I am sad and sorry for the people who have to endure the heat without the electricity to help them cool themselves.

That means they cannot turn on the fan or the air-conditioner.

There will be no cold drinks and ice-creams for days because the fridges need electricity to work.

I guess the reason for the summer heat wave is due to the global warming.
