“Unprecedented or Unexpected? A Look at Oregon’s 2020 Labor Day Fires”, Christopher Dunn OSU College of Forestry
As we all know, 2020 will be forever known for all things unusual, and the Labor Day fires were yet another example. Were they unprecedented? What conditions led to their development? What can be done to prepare? These are some of the questions we’ll explore together as we take a look back at this low-probability, high-consequence events.
