Wildfires are continuing to rage out of control in California, sparking an unprecedented exodus. More than 500,000 people have been forced to leave their homes as hot winds whip up flames across the state. Most of the destroyed homes are in the San Diego area where one person was killed on Sunday. “It’s just a lousy feeling. Everybody’s uprooted and everybody’s emotional and scared. And so am I. When I sit down I’ll probably cry,” said evacuee Janet Horvath. President George W Bush will visit California on Thursday, after states of emergency were declared in seven counties.
