Gov. Kate Brown will give a live-streamed update about Oregon wildfire risk at 3 p.m. today. Brown and others give an update on the wildfire situation in Oregon, provide information on how the state and partners are preparing and responding, and share information on how Oregonians can be prepared, according to a press release about the news conference. She will be joined by representatives from the Office of the State Fire Marshal, the Oregon Department of Forestry, the Oregon Department of Emergency Management, Portland General Electric, and PacifiCorp, Brown’s office said.
Hot, dry and windy conditions are threatening to worsen wildfires burning across Oregon, which have consumed over 100,000 acres of land and prompted evacuations in southern and northeastern Oregon.
