    BOSTON (CBS) – At least 35 people are dead as dozens of major wildfires burn out of control on the west coast. On Tuesday, a crew from Massachusetts is heading there to help. The Urban Search and Rescue Team is based out of Beverly. The 25-member crew from Task Force One departed early Tuesday from Logan Airport on their way to Oregon. Drone video shows the apocalyptic scene in Talent, Oregon. Red fire retardant covers entire neighborhoods with block after block of homes burned to the ground. At least 22 people are still missing, and that’s where the crew from Massachusetts will likely help. “They’ll be going out to post-fire areas, so areas that you know the fire has subsided, it’s expected it will mostly be wide area search, but they will do whatever is requested and required of them,” said Tom Gatzunis of Task Force One. In California, more evacuations were ordered yesterday. Thousands of homes have been destroyed and insurance losses in that state alone could top the record of $13 billion set back in 2017.

    LODI (CBS13) — San Joaquin County faces an ICU overcapacity crisis at all of its hospitals, according to the county health officer. Two federal medical teams are deployed in the county to help with staffing shortages. Officials say there are not enough doctors and nurses to treat a surge of people coming in. More than half of the patients currently admitted have COVID-19, according to data from the county Office of Emergency Services. “Anyone who needs an ICU bed might not be able to find one here,” said Dr. Maggie Park, the San Joaquin County Health Officer. Park said people shouldn’t be afraid to seek ER treatment. Local hospitals are treading water amid this surge, only as long as the situation doesn’t get worse. “Even if we can expand the number of beds, and we have the ventilators on hand, we don’t have enough staffing in our hospitals to really surge much more than we’re at right now,” Dr. Park said. That’s why the county requested help from the federal government. The Department of Defense has deployed two medical teams,...

    FRENCH CAMP (CBS13) — San Joaquin officials are sounding the alarm that hospital bed capacity is dwindling county-wide as coronavirus cases surge. On Wednesday, the county’s Office of Emergency Services revealed that hospital Intensive Care Units were already at 121 percent capacity. Total hospital capacity was at 71 percent. The county says 195 people with coronavirus are hospitalized at area hospitals, representing 28 percent of occupied hospital beds. A total of 66 coronavirus patients were in local ICU care, representing 55 percent of occupied ICU beds. These numbers have prompted officials to deploy a federal medical assistance team at Adventist Health Lodi Memorial Hospital to expand its ICU bed capacity. An extra 20 medical personnel will be arriving at the hospital on Wednesday and should bump ICU capacity up 15 percent. However, OES officials caution that there are still hospital staffing shortages. Despite the dire numbers, officials urge people who need it to not delay seeking medical care. As of Tuesday, San Joaquin County reported 212 new COVID-19 cases – making for 7,428 total cases county-wide.
