Record fires continue to flare along the West Coast of the United States.
Several states are still battling flames which have consumed entire communities.
Oregon is the latest hotspot.
But President Donald Trump has now approved its disaster declaration, making it possible for the state to access federal funds.

Kebakaran di pantai barat Amerika Syarikat. - AFP

Asap kebakaran di AS merebak ke Eropah

LOS ANGELES: Kebakaran besar yang terus menghambat kawasan pantai barat Amerika Syarikat (AS) menyaksikan asap mulai merebak dan merentas ke seluruh negara itu sehingga mampu sampai ke Eropah.

Saintis kanan dan pakar kebakaran di Perkhidmatan Pemantauan Atmosfera Copernicus Eropah (CAMS), Mark Parrington menyifatkan skala dan magnitud kebakaran itu melebihi tahap tertinggi dalam tempoh 18 tahun berdasarkan data direkodkan sejak tahun 2003.

"Kebakaran itu meningkatkan tahap pencemaran dengan asap tebal dapat dilihat sejauh 8,000 kilometer (km) sehingga ke Eropah utara, sekali gus menunjukkan kebakaran berkenaan yang begitu dahsyat," katanya, semalam.

Asap tebal daripada kebakaran itu yang bermula pada pertengahan Ogos lalu di California dilihat masih kekal di kawasan pantai barat AS.

Bandar di California seperti Los Angeles dan San Francisco termasuk Portland di Oregon dan bandar Seattle di Washington kini terancam dengan kualiti udara terburuk di dunia.

Pusat Kebakaran Antara Agensi Kebangsaan (NIFC) melaporkan, anggota bomba yang keletihan sedang berusaha memadamkan 79 kebakaran besar merentasi AS dengan kemungkinan 'situasi kebakaran yang semakin kritikal' di timur laut California.

Sementara itu, agensi Cal Fire melaporkan, majoriti kebakaran tertumpu di California dan memaksa lebih 17,000 anggota bomba bertungkus lumus memadam kebakaran di 25 kawasan.

"Dengan ketiadaan hujan, cuaca kering di California, ia terdedah kepada kebakaran hutan. Ia ditambah pula dengan cuaca panas pada hujung minggu ini, dikhuatiri meningkatkan lagi tahap kebakaran," kata agensi itu.

Selain California, kebakaran yang mengakibatkan lebih 30 kematian itu turut melanda kawasan penempatan di negara pantai barat AS seperti Oregon dan Washington.

Kebakaran itu yang ada di antaranya berpunca daripada pancaran kilat menyebabkan dua juta hektar kawasan terbakar dan menjejaskan puluhan ribu penduduk di negeri terbabit.

Bencana itu turut mewujudkan isu pemanasan global kepada kempen pilihan raya Presiden yang kurang dua bulan lagi berlangsung.
