Smoke in Southern, Central Oregon and Mt. Hood

Southern Oregon, Central Oregon and the state’s entire Cascade Range up to Mt. Hood may experience degrading air quality today and tomorrow due to smoke from new fires in the Cascades. Air quality could become unhealthy for sensitive groups in these areas—the orange category on the Air Quality Index.

An air quality advisory remains in effect for Northeastern Oregon, the Central Columbia River Gorge and Lane County.

Oregon’s wildfire smoke team will continue to monitor smoke in the state and provide updates.

Air quality conditions can change rapidly. Check current conditions on the Oregon Smoke Blog, DEQ’s Air Quality Index or by downloading the free OregonAir app for your smartphone.
