It’s like a scene from a post-apocalyptic movie.
The U.S. Post Office promises to deliver your mail no matter what — rain, shine, heat, and apparently, in the wake of the deadly Northern California wildfires.
A drone, piloted by Doug Thron, an aerial cinematographer, captured video of a mail truck making its normal postal route in the fire ravaged city of Santa Rosa, California. The wildfire has ripped across Northern California, killing 23, destroying homes, business, and local vineyards. Nearly 300 people are reported missing and more than 3,500 structures have been destroyed.
In the video, the truck drives through many blocks of burnt houses, stopping at a few to put mail in mailboxes. The driver is the only sign of life in the otherwise desolate suburb.
