Weekly Water and Climate Report: Major U.S. disasters from wildfires in the West and hurricanes in the East
From the USDA:
The Natural Resources Conservation Service produces this weekly report using data and products from the National Water and Climate Center and other agencies. The report focuses on seasonal snowpack, precipitation, temperature, and drought conditions in the U.S.
Major weather-related disasters are currently impacting the U.S. Over 100 large, uncontained wildfires are burning throughout the West. The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) requested the assistance of 200 active military personnel to help bolster the current firefighting effort on the Umpqua North Complex fire in Oregon.
Extensive damage from Hurricane Harvey continues to impact much of Texas and Louisiana, while Hurricane Irma has left a path of destruction in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, and is expected to create a major disaster when it reaches the U.S. mainland.
