Flash Drought in Oklahoma

    Trenberth in the video:
    “We’ve seen a lot of wildfires in California over the last year or so, and some really really big wildfires….”

    That was recorded in 2014. Eight of the ten biggest wildfires in California have happened since then. (Seven of the ten biggest wildfires in Oregon have happened since then, too.)
