WorldAware is following developments of multiple wildfires burning in different parts of Oregon State. Governor Kate Brown has issued a statewide state of emergency due to further threat of wildfires. Several counties, including Marion and Clackmas, have separately declared states of emergency. At least 500,000 residents across Oregon were forced to evacuate, however many evacuation orders have been lifted. Many fires are burning across Oregon, but the most impactful are Archie Creek, Beachie Creek, Holiday Farm, Lionshead, Riverside, South Obenchain, Almeda Drive, and Slater-Devil. These fires have prompted numerous evacuation orders across the state and transport disruptions in the affected areas; several road closures and disruptions are ongoing. Statewide evacuation information can be found here.
