Residents of smoke-choked Montana town advised to leave

The smoke pouring into a small MT town from a nearby wildfire has gotten so bad that health officials are warning residents to leave the area, or at least find somewhere else to sleep at night when the smoke is at its worst. Seeley Lake registered air pollution levels Thursday morning thirty-eight times above what the World Health Organization says is safe. The hazardous air prompted the Missoula City-County Health Department to recommend for the first time ever that an entire community just leave their homes for clearer skies. “Nobody should be breathing smoke this thick.”

BrazilDCIsraelIowa (Reuters) – President Michel Temer will press U.S. Vice President Mike Pence during his two-day visit to BR on cases of BRian children separated from their parents upon trying to enter the US, a BRian diplomat said on Monday. Pence will hold bilateral talks with Temer and other BRian officials on Tuesday. On Wednesday he is scheduled to visit an Amazon jungle city where refugees from VE are being housed. He will travel to EC Wednesday afternoon.

Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal on Saudi-US relationship

A senior member of the Saudi royal family has warned against a United States troop withdrawal from SY. Prince Turki al-Faisal told the BGIC the action would have a negative impact, further entrenching IR, RU and the rule of President Bashar al-Assad. The prince is no longer a member of the Saudi government, but has decades of experience within it.

The recommendation is not an enforceable evacuation and most people in the community of about one,six hundred are staying. They won’t abandon their property and choose instead to endure the stinging eyes, raspy throats and the inescapable campfire smell.

The smell is nauseating, but it’s the taste of the smoke that sticks with Ted Linford, a sixty-seven-year-old resident. “It’s almost like having the aftertaste of chalk in a drink,” he said. “You’re done with the drink and you still feel the chalk in your throat.” The one6-square miles (4one-square-kilometer) fire burning less than two miles (three.two kilometers) from Seeley Lake was 1 of thirty-eight large active wildfires across the West on Thursday, according to the PBI Fire Information Center. A dry summer and high temperatures are expected to extend the wildfire threat into September, and longer for places experiencing extreme drought like eastern MT and the western Dakotas.

In the VT town of Springville, authorities ordered people in more than two0 homes to leave Wednesday evening after extreme winds pushed a small lightning-caused fire toward the houses. Firefighters were aided by rain and they put out the fire a few hours after it started.

The fire in MT isn’t an immediate threat to Seeley Lake homes, though authorities have told residents to be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice, said Missoula County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Brenda Bassett. The popular tourist town is nestled between the Mission Mountains and the Bob Marshall Wilderness in a scenic valley that traps the smoke that rolls down the hillside at night from the fire. The smoke starts to disperse mid-morning, when the sun warms the valley floor and the warm air rises, but it returns most nights when the temperature drops again. There’s no foreseeable end to the cycle, leading Missoula health officials to issue their recommendation to leave, Coefield said.

“We understand that a lot of people may not like what we’re saying, but we also feel that it’s the most accurate message we can give,” she said. The smoke and fire have already driven many of the tourists away, and the town’s namesake lake is closed so that firefighting aircraft can safely scoop water. That’s going to hurt local businesses in a town where visitors can double the population in the summer. “It’s dead,” Linford said. It’s really odd.”

Bonnie Philliber, co-owner and general manager of the Double Arrow Lodge, said she is frustrated because she believes the threats from the smoke and fire have been overblown. It was sunny and her guests were playing tennis at the resort midmorning Thursday — business as usual, she said.

“There’s a huge forest fire, but there are forest fires everywhere,” she said. “The whole valley is an amazing place and we have people experiencing what they want to do.”
