While Texas and Florida have been dealing with catastrophic flooding from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, the West Coast has been dealing with the worst wildfire seasons in the U.S. So far, over 8 million acres have been burned, with 2 million currently in flames. In some areas, including Portland, OR, public health authorities are recommending that people stay inside because the air quality is so poor.
