West Coast wildfires as can be seen from space (PHOTOS)

The escalating situation throughout all three west coast states continues to plague property, natural growth, and the quality of the air around us.

Just this morning, authorities in Clackamas County had to expand their evacuation orders to nearly Beaverton, which could in time span far enough to concern Portland.

For now, many outside of the evacuation zones will be forced to deal with the product of the fires: the smoke. With aid offered by the Red Cross, strategy and tips given by health authorities, and at least a few more days of poor quality ahead of us, it’s important that the scale of the issue is understood.

Thanks to some help from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Meteorology branches, we can see just how large the scale of the wildfires is via satellite feeds, and the coverage of the smoke that they are producing.
