Trump says he came to California to see fire scars

Deputies have located hundreds of people to date, but the overall number keeps growing because officials are adding names, including those reported as missing during the disaster's chaotic early hours, Honea said.

"This is very sad", Trump said after surveying the remains of Paradise, where almost the only people out on the road were emergency services workers, surrounded by the twisted remains of the incinerated town.

"There are a lot of people displaced and we're finding a lot of people don't know we are looking for them", Honea said.

The inferno erupted November 8, laying waste to the town of Paradise in the northern foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains and sending thousands fleeing.

Among the dead was Lolene Rios, 56, whose son Jed tearfully told KXTV in Sacramento that his mother "had endless amount of love for me".

Later in the day, Mr Trump, Governor Brown and Governor-elect Newsom visited an area in southern California affected by the Woolsey fire.

"That is raw data we're collecting from phone calls, emails and the 911 system", Honea said Saturday.

A reporter asked if climate change was discussed with the president, but Trump jumped in to say, "We didn't discuss it".

Trump initially blamed state officials for poor forest management in exacerbating the fires and threatened to cut off federal funding.

They got out, but another team couldn't and ended up back at the hospital. But in the face of tragedy, people tend to rise above some of their lesser propensities.

"I think everybody's seen the light and I don't think we'll have this again to this extent."

"So yeah, you can mull the science, but I'll tell you every year it's going to get clearer and clearer so that I think in less than five years, even the worst skeptics are going to be believers". Jerry Brown and Governor-elect Gavin Newsom while on a visit to a charred portion of a Northern California town hit by the wildfires. At right is California Gov. Rain was forecast for midweek, which could help firefighters but also complicate the search for remains.

Firefighters are racing to get ahead of strong winds and low humidity expected overnight and into Sunday afternoon.

Northern California's Camp Fire has destroyed almost 10,000 homes and torched 233 square miles (603 square kilometres).

The Woolsey Fire was 88 percent contained on Sunday, authorities said.

Trump repeated his view Saturday that forest management - the partial clearing and cleaning of brush from forests - was partly to blame for the string of vast and deadly wildfires in recent years.

Trump, who left Washington early Saturday and didn't expect to return to the White House until well past midnight, planned to travel several hundred miles south to visit with victims of a recent country music bar shooting.

"I think that California's been really terrible to him and the fights". He told a local newspaper that he had briefed Trump on Finland's efforts to surveil and care for its forests, the Associated Press wrote, "but said he can't recall anything being mentioned on raking". "It's back and forth between the state and the feds". The town was consumed by the Camp Fire, the most destructive fire in state history.

Maggie Missere-Crowder said if Trump came to the Walmart, she would shake his hand, but she otherwise needed to focus on getting her tent and plastic storage boxes with food and other items into her pickup truck.

"Let's hope he gets us some help", said Couch, who voted for Trump and whose house was among those burned down last week.

Mr Brown and Mr Newsom said on Friday they welcomed the president's visit and "now is a time to pull together for the people of California".

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, California, as well as Texas and Florida, has one of the highest levels of human population in wildland-urban interface areas. This is Trump's second visit to California as president.
