No combate às chamas estão 349 operacionais e 102 veículos. Os meios aéreos foram desmobilizados com o cair da noite.

Para o local foram mobilizados quatro grupos de reforço: do Porto, de Braga, Força Especial de Bombeiros e Grupo de Intervenção Permanente.

As chamas deflagraram na zona de Oura, concelho de Chaves, e desceram para o concelho de Vila Pouca de Aguiar, aproximando-se da aldeia de Vila do Conde.

A Estrada Nacional 2 (EN2) foi, entretanto, reaberta, tal como outras estradas municipais que ligam Vila do Conde ou Loivos.

Na aldeia de Vila do Conde, a agência Lusa pode constatar que se viveram momentos de alguma preocupação devido à aproximação do fogo, que ainda rodeou alguns quintais, e também por causa do fumo intenso que caiu sobre a localidade.

Luís Dias, membro da direção do Clube de Golfe de Vidago, ficou parado num cruzamento, porque a GNR não o deixou passar para ver como estava o campo, localizado junto à aldeia de Vila Real.

Referiu que durante a tarde, os helicópteros mobilizados para o combate ao fogo foram abastecer nas lagoas do campo de golfe, uma situação que já é usual quando se verificam fogos nesta região.

"Sempre que é possível nós facilitamos", sublinhou.

"O fogo esteve a cerca de 200 metros do campo de golfe. Queria ir ver como está o campo, mas não me estão a deixar passar", sublinhou.

A agência Lusa tentou ouvir os responsáveis locais pela Proteção Civil, mas não foi possível obter qualquer informação sobre o incêndio.

Segundo Patrícia Gaspar, desde as 00:00 desta quarta-feira registaram-se, em todo o país, 96 ocorrências de incêndios florestais, que mobilizaram 2.922 operacionais, 755 veículos e 44 missões com meios aéreos.

In the fight against the flames are 349 operational and 102 vehicles. Air was demobilized at nightfall.

For the site, four reinforcement groups were mobilized: Porto, Braga, Special Fire Brigade and Permanent Intervention Group.

The flames exploded in the area of ​​Oura, Chaves municipality, and descended to the municipality of Vila Pouca de Aguiar, approaching the village of Vila do Conde.

National Highway 2 (EN2) was, however, reopened, as are other municipal roads linking Vila do Conde or Loivos.

In the village of Vila do Conde, the agency Lusa can see that there were moments of some concern due to the approach of the fire, which still surrounded some yards, and also because of the intense smoke that fell on the locality.

Luís Dias, a member of the management of the Vidago Golf Club, was stopped at a crossroads because the GNR did not let him pass to see how the field was located, located near the village of Vila Real.

He said that during the afternoon, the helicopters deployed for firefighting were supplied in the lagoons of the golf course, a situation that is already common when there are fires in this region.

"Whenever possible we make it easier," he said.

"The fire was about 200 meters from the golf course. I wanted to see how the course is, but they are not letting me pass," he said.

The Lusa agency tried to listen to local officials for Civil Protection, but it was not possible to obtain any information about the fire.

According to Patrícia Gaspar, since 00:00 this Wednesday, there were 96 forest fires occurring throughout the country, which mobilized 2,922 operations, 755 vehicles and 44 missions with air assets.

An international team of climate researchers from the US, South Korea and the UK has developed a new wildfire and drought prediction model for southwestern North America. Extending far beyond the current seasonal forecast, this study published in the journal Scientific Reports could benefit the economies with a variety of applications in agriculture, water management and forestry.

Over the past 15 years, California and neighboring regions have experienced heightened conditions and an increase in numbers with considerable impacts on human livelihoods, agriculture, and terrestrial ecosystems. This new research shows that in addition to a discernible contribution from natural forcings and human-induced global warming, the large-scale difference between Atlantic and Pacific ocean temperatures plays a fundamental role in causing droughts, and enhancing wildfire risks.

"Our results document that a combination of processes is at work. Through an ensemble modeling approach, we were able to show that without anthropogenic effects, the droughts in the southwestern United States would have been less severe," says co-author Axel Timmermann, Director of the newly founded IBS Center for Climate Physics, within the Institute for Basics Science (IBS), and Distinguished Professor at Pusan National University in South Korea. "By prescribing the effects of man-made climate change and observed global ocean temperatures, our model can reproduce the observed shifts in weather patterns and wildfire occurrences."
