Wildfire smoke affecting Gilliam County

Smoke from the Scott Canyon wildfire in Eastern Oregon may be affecting parts of Gilliam County. The air quality rating for the past 24 hours is currently moderate or yellow at the John Day Dayton and the La Grande Ash Street monitoring stations. Some surrounding areas are registering green or good on the Air Quality Index. To keep an eye on air quality conditions in the area visit: http://www.deq.state.or.us/aqi/index.aspx or subscribe to Enviroflash Air Quality Alerts http://www.enviroflash.info/ to receive air quality information for where you live.

  1. Actually, people much further E (such as Pilot Rock) complained about more thick smoke than was observed in S Gilliam County. Today, am wondering if winds aloft are running contrary to surface winds, and sending smoke E from the Rattlesnake Fire, Warm Springs.
