‘Typical’ storm proves costly

The storm system that would trigger havoc and spark some of the largest wildfires of the 2014 season began innocently enough as a typical summer low pressure system off the Pacific coast.

Yet, by the time the system careened over Oregon during the weekend of July 11 through July 13 it spawned a number of fires across the state, including the huge Buzzard Complex blaze near Burns, and it delivered more than 1,000 lightning strikes over an area already parched from dry conditions.

The Buzzard Complex Fire ballooned into the nation’s largest blaze after consuming more than 600 square miles of rangeland.

“It was definitely one that had a lot of lightning strikes with it,” Mary Wister, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Pendleton, said.
