News video: Weather Conditions Threaten To Worsen Wildfires As Death Toll Climbs To 31On Friday, firefighters faced more dry, windy conditions that threaten to stoke rampant wildfires in Northern California that have already killed at least thirty-one people and left hundreds missing in one of the worst fires in the state's history. The current toll from over twenty fires raging across eight counties could continue to climb, as over four-hundred people in Sonoma County remain missing. According to the National Weather Service, winds of up to 60 mph and humidity of only ten percent threaten to create “critical fire weather conditions” and “contribute to extreme fire behavior” on Friday afternoon and into Saturday.
