NASA images: Oregon burning

NASA images: Oregon burning
On July 26, 2013, thunderstorms passed over southern Oregon, and lightning ignited dozens of difficult-to-control wildfires. Persistently dry weather since the beginning of 2013 had primed forests to burn, and nearly all of southern Oregon was in a state of severe or moderate drought. In early August, forecasters were expecting the situation to worsen. http://phys.org/news/2013-08-nasa-images-oregon.html#nwlt
