Smoky Summer in the Pacific Northwest

Smoky Summer in the Pacific Northwest

The extraordinary heatwave that scorched the Pacific Northwest in June 2021 has diminished, but substantial fires continued to burn across the region in July. Exacerbated by extreme heat and wind, more than 40 fires started burning across British Columbia in late June. By July 8, that number climbed to more than 200 active fires across the Canadian province, of which 15 were considered “wildfires of note” (especially large fires, or fires that threaten public safety). In Prince George, the air quality health risk was “high,” meaning the general population should reduce or reschedule strenuous activities outdoors. On July 8, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality issued an air quality advisory for Klamath and Lake counties.
