Canadá evacúa la ciudad de Yellowknife

By Phil Bainbridge

August 17, 2023 - Las autoridades han ordenado la evacuación de 20.000 residentes de Yellowknife, capital de los Territorios del Noroeste de Canadá, cuando los incendios forestales de 163.000 hectáreas se están acercando a la ciudad.

The fire was already within 17km of the Yellowknife by Aug 17, and is expected to reach Highway 3, the only highway connecting the city with the rest of Canada, at which point evacuation will become much more difficult. Barring rainfall, it is expected to reach the city by the weekend.

Canada has been experiencing an unprecedented heatwave, with temperature records falling daily, causing wildfires in parts of nearly all the country’s provinces and territories.
