Oregon wildfires: Apocalyptic cloud of smoke covers US west coast – 40,000 people evacuate

Trump, who trails Biden in national polls ahead of the Nov 3 election, met with firefighters and officials in California after Democrats blasted the Republican president for remaining mostly silent about the largest wildfires in state history.

Experts, environmentalists and loggers largely agree that thinning trees and brush through prescribed burns and careful logging will help prevent forests that cover vast tracts of the American West from threatening cities with fire. However, numerous California blazes have roared through coastal chaparral and grasslands, not forest, and some of the largest are burning on federal land.

In the state of Washington firefighters continue to tackle 15 large wildfires.

Dozens of conflagrations have raged more than 1.6 million hectares in Oregon, California and Washington state since August, laying waste to several small towns, destroying thousands of homes and killing at least 35 people.

As she did for the latter part of last week, Governor Kate Brown will be giving a 1 pm press conference today to provide updates on the current state of OR wildfires and the progress being made to contain them. White House adviser Peter Navarro echoed that Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union", saying that for many years in California, "particularly because of budget cutbacks, there was no inclination to manage our forests".

"We need a president who respects science, who understands that the damage from climate change is already here", added Biden, who was speaking in Delaware. "This isn't about forest management or raking".

Millions of dollars are spent on tree thinning and brush clearing every year in Western states, though many argue more needs to be done.

The president has suggested that poor forest management has much to do with igniting the fires.

"Where you have lots of people living on small acreages close together, and you've got houses and barns and sheds and corrals and fences, it's very hard to do a prescribed burn", Gersbach said.

Oddly enough, Grace had to withdraw from the PGA Championship last month when he tested positive for the virus. England's Sam Horsfield tees off during the Hero Open in Birmingham, England, on August 2, 2020.

In southern OR to Northern California, warnings of low moisture and strong winds - conditions that can drive the flames - are in effect through Tuesday.

Thick smoke and ash from the fires have darkened skies over the Pacific Northwest since Labor Day last Monday, creating some of the world's worst air-quality levels and driving residents indoors.

At least 10 people have been killed in OR in the past week. Officials have said more people are missing, and the number of fatalities is likely to rise, though they have not said how high the toll could go as they search.

Most of the fatalities have occurred in California and OR, with emergency services in the two states recording 26 deaths.

"It could be a little different change in color if there is smoke in the air at that time", Lott said.

"The thought here is that it should clear out today", he said.

"We thought we'd get out of this summer with no fires", he said.

Crews in Jackson County, Oregon, where Talent is located, were hoping to venture into rural areas where the Almeda Fire has abated slightly with slowing winds, sending up thick plumes of smoke as the embers burned. "There is something going on, that's for sure, man".
