Dramatic Satellite Imagery Shows Intense Wildfires Ravaging Western US


Dramatic satellite imagery shows the intense wildfires raging across the Western US, generating large smoke columns that have blanketed several states.

Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere’s Dakota Smith released what he says is “awful satellite imagery out of the West” last week that shows the extent of the “2021 Western wildfire disaster.” (Click Here)

According to the National Interagency Fire Center, more than 99 larger fires are burning in 12 states and have consumed more than 2.5 million acres. 

The largest active fire to date is Dixie Fire in Northern California. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection reported at 0752 local time that Dixie has burned 714,000 acres and is only 35% contained. 

Smith tweeted a GIF satellite video of the Dixie Fire. (Click Here)

Readers may recall in a weather note from May titled “California’s 2021 Fire Season Could Be “Like Armageddon,” Officials Warn” we quoted California’s top fire officials who warned, “conditions are already ripe for wildfires.” 

What’s happening across the West is nothing short of historical, especially the Dixie Fire in California. (Click to Source)
