Nice article on Katrina vs. San Diego fires.

California fires can't be compared to Katrina, officials say - Breaking News Updates New Orleans - Times-Picayune - NOLA.com
Katrina's scale of devastation and its impact on humanity, however, was far greater. The number of homes destroyed or still threatened in California is about 10 percent of the roughly 200,000 left uninhabitable by Katrina and the often overlooked Hurricane Rita, which struck three weeks later.

Just wait. Some bigoted right winger is going to tell us how much better white California reacted than black New Orleans. After memories fade a little.

There is a big difference between the wealthy citizens that were affected by the california fires. And the largely poor population that was affected by Katrina.
