A national research program announced that Oregon had 54 record breaking extreme weather events in 2012.

 

The Natural Resources Defense Council has released an interactive map that shows the number of large wildfires, inches of precipitation or record cold and hot temperatures throughout the state.

 

Kim Knowlton, Senior Scientist with the NRDC says there is a direct correlation between the extreme weather events and climate change, so people need to work towards preventing disasters.

 

"On the prevention side: it's a very strong step that we can all take to say to our elected officials it's really important to limit carbon pollution. To turn the way that we get energy towards a better mix; a cleaner more renewable mix. to rely more on energy efficiency. To do that, be cause then we limit the worst effect of climate change. And one of those worst effects are those darn extreme weather events."

 

Deschutes County had record breaking precipitation in 2012 with about 5.5 inches on one day; the previous record was two inches in 2010.
