(NaturalNews) High winds whipped up devastating fires across Texas Sunday and sent them coursing through the tinderbox landscape at record speed. Across central Texas, spanning Austin, Waco and even approaching Shreveport, wildfires leapt across the drought-stricken state with astounding speed.

Many thousands of acres burned across the state Sunday, including a 14,000-acre fire in Bastrop, Texas, where hundreds of houses were destroyed and mandatory evacuations were issued. Click here to see a video of the fire which closed the highways there.

Another video has been posted on YouTube, showing the enormous smoke clouds that almost look like the aftermath of a volcanic eruption:

Here's a link to some stunning photographs that really depict the magnitude of the fires:

Fires also broke out in Travis County, Texas, where Austin is located. In Pflugerville, North of Austin, fires broke out but were later contained. As of Sunday afternoon, some of the fires raging across Texas included:

Colorado County - Bailey Fire- 1,000 Acres
Fayette County - Lutherhill Fire- 250 Acres
Bastrop County - Bastrop Fire- 14,000 Acres
Caldwell County - Delhi Fire- 1,000 Acres
Limestone County - CR491 Fire- 3,000 Acres
Van Zandt County - Bonbiew Ranch Fire- 350 Acres
Anderson County - Henderson Fire- 200 Acres
Harrison County - Linden 538 Fire- 200 Acres
Gregg County - Linden 543 Fire- 300 Acres

Tonight, tens of thousands of Texans have been either forced out of their homes or made instantly homeless by the devastation. Emergency crews have been recalled from their Labor Day weekend to help fight the fires that still rage well into the night.

More details about the fires raging across central Texas are found at KXAN.com:

Confirmed hit: Steiner Ranch, Spicewood, Liberty Hill, Bastrop, La Grange and more. Mandatory evacuations have been issued in several areas.

Personal note: I am safe from the fires and well prepared to face just about anything. My emergency go bag is in my car, which is also ready with emergency supplies, LED lights, water filter, radios, emergency medicine, a Swiss camp axe, combat knife and quite a lot more that I won't go into. So don't worry about me. I'm better prepared than most, and we're actually trying to figure out how to pitch in and help the locals once the smoke clears. Right now it's mostly just everybody scrambling, with emergency sirens blaring down the highways, planes flying overhead, etc. Mostly on my part this is about helping people get food, shelter, clothing, etc., and perhaps help rescue animals who have been left homeless too.

Please send your prayers to Texas tonight, as thousands of people are impacted by this devastating chain of firestorms raging across the state. This may continue well into Monday as well. Watch the NaturalNews Facebook page for details: www.Facebook.com/HealthRanger

More updates to come tomorrow, unless we are forced to evacuate the Austin area... but we'll still find a way to post on FB and Twitter either way.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
