White Rock broke a 1939 record by hitting 29.5 C, while the Squamish Airport broke a 1993 record with temperatures reaching 33.2 C.

There are now no active wildfires in the Wasco, Sherman and Gilliam counties; however, smoke coming from fires elsewhere has caused poor air quality in The Dalles.

The Washoe County Health District says the air quality is now in the unhealthy range.

"We want to protect everyone", explains Melissa Gibbs, the DEQ Regional Air Quality Manager in Pocatello.

Korea leaving door open to U.S. visitors
Some experts believe Asean could seek to play a role as a mediator, since it is an Asian bloc not party to the standoff. The top American and North Korean diplomats may cross paths in the Philippines next week, but have no plans to meet.


"As our monitors are picking up more of the particulate matter from the smoke people are going to experience a little bit of discomfort if they have outdoor activities planned and the more they expose themselves to the smoke", says Niehaus. Those most vulnerable to high temperatures include young children, pregnant women, the elderly, those working or exercising in the heat, persons with chronic illnesses, people living alone in un-air-conditioned homes, and the homeless. The air quality rating then worsened again Thursday afternoon.

Unhealthy air quality means everyone can be affected.

Beijing's air quality index was 80, Shanghai sat at 78, and Chongqing was ranked 65, all of which are considered moderate, according to the World Air Quality Index Project.
