The Oregon Health Authority sent out the following:
This week, Oregon is facing an unprecedented threat from wildfires in all areas of the state. The number one priority right now is saving lives as we fight more than 35 fires, burning 300,000+ acres across the state. Winds continue to fuel them.
Places not burning now still face the worst fire condition risks in 30 years: Dry air, dry brush and hot winds. Everyone must be on high alert.
Pay attention to directions from firefighters, local officials and emergency responders. If you are asked to evacuate, do so immediately. Your choices could save lives.
