Oregon Gov. Kate Brown described her own status after dealing with Oregon’s historic wildfires Wednesday in a way that many people directly impacted probably relate to.
“At times, it’s felt overwhelming to have this crisis hit our state,” Brown said during a media briefing. “The loss of lives, the loss of our own homes or those of our fellow Oregonians, the loss of our forests and iconic landscapes.”
Brown recently completed a trip to Southern Oregon, where she visited the cities that were badly burned as the Almeda fire swept through the area on Sept. 8.
