Fires are continuing to rage across parts of the US West Coast, with more than half a million people evacuated from their homes in the state of Oregon. In neighbouring California, to the south, and Washington, to the north, wildfires are also wreaking havoc, burning through forests and towns.

The Irish Times would like to hear from Irish people living in any of the areas affected. What has your experience been? Have you had to change your plans because of the wildfires? Are you concerned?

Don’t forget to tell us a little about your background – where you are from originally, when you moved to the US, where you live now and what you do. If you have one to share, please also attach a photograph that you think might be suitable.

A selection of responses will be published by The Irish Times.

Thank you and stay safe.
