The Nakia Creek Fire burning in Clark County continues to be the #1 priority wildfire in the country so all state and federal resources that area available are working it. It has grown to just over 1,900 acres but is now 23% contained – that’s improvement from yesterday. Today’s weather is expected to bring a little more wind and some rain – but that moisture is a double edged sword because it could create mud slides
While the rain will help with our air quality, the Oregon DEQ has extended its air quality advisory to Monday…and expanded it to now include Polk and Yamill Counties. At one point yesterday, Portland’s air got over 200 AQI which is in the Very Unhealthy category. They’re suggesting N-95 masks for people who may be in sensitive groups.
