Drought and Wildfires Threaten Properties in Palm Beach

The drought is here…again. After a couple of years with reasonably abundant rainy seasons it seems like this year is going to be one of the driest South Florida has experienced in the last 80 years, at least according to the South Florida Water Management District. Palm Beach County has already experienced 29 brush fires since December, as compared to only four during the same period last year. According to the forestry district, the number of brush fires in its Everglades District (which includes Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties), is more than twice the number for the same period last year. Lightning Not To Blame This Time According to authorities, human activity (unattended camp fires, carelessly disposing of cigarets, etc.) is their main concern, not the traditional suspect: lightning…The drought creates the ideal scenario for brush or wildfires to start: considerable accumulation of very dry "underbrush" and dropping water table, which makes it very difficult for firefighters to find sources of water to use when combating the blaze. Therefore, authorities are asking the population to be extra careful with potential sources of fires when enjoying the outdoors.
