  • Washoe air moves into

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.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers relieved of front office duties
He will now go back to being just the head coach, while Lawrence Frank will overtake his role of head of basketball operations. The change comes after a conversation with owner Steve Ballmer , according to the team's release.


"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.
