Ewing shared photographs on Facebook of the neighboring fire orange glow, and trees moving up on a nearby hillside -- how nearby was difficult to tell in the dark. "Wow -- it is a nightmare," he wrote, observing fire crews head up the street. Scenes such as that were repeated across much of the state, as a called windstorm came to pass amid large fire danger, sending trees toppling onto homes and highways and causing wildfires to spread fast, including one that closed Highway 97 north of Chiloquin.
By late Monday night, according to ODOT TripCheck, a nearly 70-mile stretch of Highway 22, west from the junction with Highway 20, was closed as a result of the fires and downed trees. State Highway 126 was closed by a wildfire, four kilometers west of McKenzie Bridge.
ODOT advised early Tuesday that wildfires had shut a nearly 70-mile stretch (milepost 82 to 13) of state Highway 22 between Stayton and the Santiam Junction with Highway 20, along with a 26-mile stretch (milepost 28-54) of nation Highway 126 (that the McKenzie Highway) involving Vida and country Highway 242.
"Evacuations are underway in both areas," they advised. "Watch for fire teams." Forecasters and fire officers had cautioned days the"wind event" was going to cause destruction -- and it did, with downed trees stranding many motorists until the streets could be cleared, together with the spreading wildfires. Ewing said early Tuesday that after the Highway 22 closed amid Level 3 evacuations in the area -- such as Idanha, Gates and Detroit -- drivers were turned back to Salem and may head over Santiam Pass on U.S. Highway 20.
But it had been bumper-to-bumper, slow going trafficthrough flames... a terrifying trip. Initially declared at BlizzCon 2019, Shadowlands will have us follow Sylvanas Windrunner to the afterlife because she wreaks havoc in the domain of the deceased.
