The California wildfires have now killed 80 people, but officials fear the toll could climb much higher -- with nearly 1,300 still missing.

Rain is in the forecast for Northern California Tuesday and may last through the weekend, bringing a much needed reprieve for the 5,300 firefighters battling the Camp Fire in Butte County, north of San Francisco.

Volunteers in white coveralls went house-to-house Sunday looking for human remains in the charred houses in Chico. When no remains were found, they marked the locations with a spray-painted orange "O" and moved on. Authorities are asking the public to for notification if someone on the list is found alive.

The rains could be a mixed blessing, as they would help extinguish the Camp Fire that's burned since Nov. 8, but would also turn the ashen ground to a sloppy mess. The storms could bring stronger winds, too.

 

"As much as I wish that we could get through all of this before the rains come, I don't know if that's possible," Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said, adding that officials may never know the exact death toll.

The fire has burned more than 10,000 homes, 418 commercial buildings and 3,000 other buildings, Cal Fire said. It's about 65 percent contained.

President Donald Trump visited fire-ravaged Paradise over the weekend to view the aftermath first hand. 

"We've never seen anything like this in California; we've never seen anything like this yet. It's total devastation," he said.

Last week, Trump criticized forest management practices in California and threatened to cut federal aid to the state. He's since backed off that stance.

"He's got our back," Gov. Jerry Brown told CBS' Face the Nation Sunday. "There have been some back and forth between California leaders and the president. But in the face of tragedy, people tend to rise above some of the lesser propensities. So I think we're on a good path." 

Paradise is among the hardest hit cities.

"Our entire five-member council is homeless," Paradise town councilor Melissa Schuster told ABC News. "All of our houses have been destroyed. The entire community of Paradise is a toxic wasteland right now."

There's also been an outbreak of the norovirus at the shelter in Butte County, county health spokesman Lisa Almaguer said.

Trump also visited Malibu in Southern California, which was hit hard by the Woolsey Fire. It is 91 percent contained after burning 97,000 acres, Cal Fire said. It's responsible for three of the 80 deaths.

Two officials, who asked to remain anonymous because of the nature of what they revealed, say America needs to prepare itself mentally for the likely reality that the nearly 1,300 people who are "missing" are likely all dead.

    ~Most of us are indeed 'thankful' for Hal'Turner's devout patriotism, -of which this enlightening article is another good example. Sadly however, at this time of Christian Thanksgiving (-note, the deceptive term- 'Judaeo-Christain' is an oxymoron), many are also solemnly aware that greed-driven atheistic Jew-zionist terrorists are employing taxpayer-funded DEW/Directed Energy Weaponry (-see many revealing videos on YouTube)-technology against defenseless civilians; --the first known event using thermally-pulverizing Lasar-beams was their murderous attack on 911-NY/TwinTowers, --and they were so $uccessfully embolded by that heinous-act of sabotage that these anti-social sociopaths are now targeting private land-grabbing, primarily in California where countless thousands have lost their homes, and their lives; -and wildlife is likewise devastated. These forces of evil are known to be a fringe element within the Military-Industrial Complex; --accordingly, stealthy whistle-blowing patriots are invited to expose what they can! Our glorious leader is doubtlessly aware of these sinister Rothschild-agents submerged within the Wash.DC-$wamp, -and the urgent need to 'Abolish the Fed.Reserve' &'IRS', and implement Marshal-Law, as to confiscate these Laser-weapons, and exterminate these ruthless devils..!! ~R.vH

    I’m sure the true number dead is easily over 10,000.

    This was prophecied by a person roughly a month ago. Same person prophecied the floods in Virginia and North Carolina from the hurricane. Same person prophecied the floods in Houston a year ago. Same person says Jesus wants us to turn to him and prepare.

    Why is God mad? Wickedness in high places. Elected places. These are warnings. Things could get worse. When the leaders go bad, the people suffer the wrath too. Over and over in the Bible are examples for us to see.

    Stop the hatred. Haters gonna hate. Yeah, so who do you want to be in God's eyes? A hater like Satan? Don't hate, rather convert. Many Republicans used to be Independents. Many Independents used to be Democrats. Many Muslims are converting to belief in Jesus Christ. Would they have done that if they believed that Christianity was merely a religion and at that also just like Islam in that it is just another religion of hate? Many Jews ate becoming Messianic Jews who now believe in the Messiah, Jesus. Why hate them? Why hate the Jews God's inheritance?

    What is wrong when someone hates? Where does hate come from? God? NO. But anger and wrath does come from God for his purposes. Just saying... Alan

    There will be no shortage of Democrat voters. Does anyone know how a fire can burn 80 acres in one minute and how it can burn cars but not pine trees? Just so happens Feinstein’s husband has a deal for a high speed train in the area probably with the Chinese. It is said there is gold in the mountains too. Moonbeam Jerry was out of the state at the time. I wonder if we’ll ever find out where he was.

      Idk, Miley Cyrus posted on YouTube (have no clue why it was in my recommended list), that her house burned down. She's neither conservative or senior.

      Looks like luciferians aren't immune to fire after all. I wonder if the fires were a warning by China to their Hollywood properties to keep toeing the line. Idk.

    Just like with Hurricane Michael. They're still lying about the numbers. They actually ran out of body bags, but of course you won't hear that on the mainstream media.

    The Developmentally Disabled Democrat Dullards stole all the water from the Farmers and gave it to the 'Spotted Minnows' so there was none left to Fight the Fires! Fires which were Fueled by the Dead brush and Timber left on the ground by the Blue Haired, Tattooed, Nose Ring Wearing Mother Earth Worshiping Tree Hugging Homos!

    Directed Energy Weapons created fires, with a dried out CHemtrails' environment makes California a tinderbox. this is pure evil and the perps in the military (yes, the stupid bastards in our military 'taking orders' to spray metals and weather control our nation) should be IMPRISONED. this is rothschild judaism satanic evil and these scumbags must be executed by the State.

    This is what happens when the city dwelling libtards want to make believe they know what’s best for everyone else. But then again, according to the crazies, humans are the worst enemy so the more you get rid of the better
