Nearly 2,000 hectares of smoke continue to rise in Hyde County after a lightning strike 12 days later. It is the latest in a series of wildfires in recent months.
“We have a lot of wildfires this year and he’s the only oneA. “More fires and more land,” said Philip Jackson, public information officer for North Carolina Forest Service.
Forests have been working to control the fire by pouring millions of gallons of water into nearby lakes. According to Thursday, forest services account for 44% of the fire and are pouring more than 170 million gallons from a nearby new lake to control the fire.
NC Forest Service Forest Commander John Cook said the fire was not burning but was still burning. “Every inch of land that goes down is consuming more than a thousand tons of fire and increasing smoke into the air,” he said. Cook and his team said they were working tirelessly to put out the fire in an effort to protect Pete’s unique soil.
More than 10,000 hectares of wildfires have been linked to carbon dioxide poisoning in Carolina Ranch, a “natural tourist destination” because of its ability to absorb CO2. When burned, carbon emissions are released into the atmosphere. But experts say the fire could have been worse if it had not been for an eco-farm built to restore water in the area.
According to Randall Ethereum, a professor of environmental engineering at the University of East Carolina, working with the Carolina Ranch to rehabilitate peas can turn wildfires into wildfires. “If you don’t have water and there is no water, it will burn 10 feet down,” Ethereum said.
Ethereum says the Atlantic native has been drying up for decades. “In the past, a lot of these areas have been flooded for agricultural production, housing and so on,” he said. Ethereum is currently the main focus of the restoration of hydrology in those areas because the Pokémon area is an important habitat for biodiversity, providing benefits including improving local water quality, as well as preventing wildfires and floods. Peas, which take thousands of years to decompose, are one of the most powerful tools for capturing natural carbon. But with most of the housing lost, a lot of carbon is being released into the atmosphere.
As millions plan to start fireworks this holiday season, NC Forest Service is warning residents that dry conditions could increase the risk of wildfires. The concern is encouraging residents to look for professional fireworks instead of engaging in their own fireworks. Forest Service is also warning drivers of potential hazards due to fog and fires on Fereb Road, and smoke has been reported in the east to Kitty Hawk.
