Tuesday, July 20, 2021 – Dangerous heat: wildfires and heatwaves
The National Interagency Fire Center counts more than 70 wildfires in recent weeks. The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation in Washington issued a state of emergency and evacuated residents from the town of Nespelem because of an encroaching fire. Meanwhile, heatwaves are scorching much of the western half of the country and weather experts say there’s more to come. The Spokane Tribe of Indians and Colville tribes established heat shelters for community members who don’t have cooling systems in their homes. We’ll check in with tribes about these recent climate-related emergencies.
