Smoke from the fires in Siberia reached Alaska and some areas of the west coast of Canada. It is reported by NASA, with reference to satellite data.
According to Colin Seftora, an atmospheric scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Center, smoke has now reached Canadian Vancouver and American Seattle. Also part of it spread over the eastern part of the Pacific Ocean.
Scientists note that the fires in Canada also affect atmospheric pollution in the region – there is also a forest there now.
The fires are also observed in Roscosmos. They reported that they gave rescuers information about the situation on almost 2 million square kilometers in the region.
The area of forest fires in Siberia has reached three million hectares. The emergency mode was introduced in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, the Irkutsk Region and partly in Buryatia. On July 31, EMERCOM aviation began extinguishing, and the Ministry of Defense sent 10 airplanes and helicopters.
