Wildfires, Wind Cast Haze Over The Willamette Valley

Wind has cast an apocalyptic-like haze over the Willamette Valley.

Smoke from the Whitewater Fire burning near Mount Jefferson and wildfires in British Columbia was pushed by offshore flow winds from the north and northeast.

The current air quality indexes for Hillsboro, Portland and Salem are unhealthy, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency Wednesday as wildfire danger increased across the state.
