Canadá evacua a cidade de Yellowknife

By Phil Bainbridge

August 17, 2023 - Os 20.000 habitantes de Yellowknife, capital dos Territórios do Noroeste
do Canadá, receberam ordem de evacuação com incêndio a aproximar-se da cidade.

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.
