Orleans Complex News Release

Smoke Update, Orleans Complex

Incident: Orleans Complex Wildfire
Released: 8/28/2017

August 28 Areas in the vicinity of the fires continue to be impacted heavily by smoke with similar conditions expected today. As instability in the atmosphere increases, smoke will begin to mix and dissipate. Clearing smoke will also bring more sunlight into the area which can increase fire activity resulting in more smoke. Areas closest to and adjacent from the fires will continue to see the worst air quality. Smoke will settle in valleys but is expected to dissipate in the afternoon into the evening. Happy Camp, Seiad Valley, the Scott Valley, Sawyers Bar, and Orleans can expect Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups to hazardous conditions. Air quality in Weed, Callahan, and Willow Creek will likely have moderate to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups levels. Drivers should be aware of limited visibility and changes in traffic flow. Information on the health effects of smoke and what you can do to reduce your smoke exposure can be found at [https://www.cdc.gov/disasters/wildfires/smoke.html].
