Air quality advisory in place due to wildfire smoke

Air quality advisory in place due to wildfire smoke

Those who typically walk or jog to work are advised to consider taking a bus or Skytrain instead until the air quality improves.

Officials recommend staying inside with windows closed and air conditioners set to recirculate.

Air quality is expected to get worse as smoke builds up with visibility being affected.

It's the second time in a week smoke from wildfires has pushed the state's air quality into risky level.

The National Weather Service issued an Air Quality Alert through 5 p.m. Wednesday.

One staffer told cops, Richie told him he had a truck full of guns outside and used his hand to make the shape of a gun. He was released by the Buffalo Bills from their reserved/retired list in May.

The smoky pollution came from wildfires in British Columbia and the Cascade Mountains, clouding a season that many spend outdoors.

Western Montana is now monitoring where wildfire smoke from California, Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Canada ends up.

"Definitely, it's a concern for people, especially those with asthma and other pre-existing conditions where this real poor air quality can definitely cause them to experience symptoms", said Jim Kelly, with the state's health department.

"We always tell people that the elderly or people with breathing difficulties, people with young children, to keep an eye on that", he said.

Tower said Monday had been a "really successful day" for firefighters working at Shovel Lake and the nearby Island Lake fire, despite the challenges posed by smoke and ash in the sky.

Teenage Flamengo goalkeeper Hugo Souza was also selected despite having never played for the Rio de Janeiro club's first team. Liverpool's Fabinho was named among the full-backs and Flamengo star Lucas Paqueta was included in the group of midfeidlers.

Many monitoring stations in B.C. are reporting AQHI health risk levels in the high to very high range, with some modest improvement expected in the next few days over the interior, but worse conditions along the coast as winds shift. "It's substantial. Air quality definitely has an impact on public health".

"Using an air conditioner that cools and filters air may help", stated the advisory.

There have been more than 1,122 wildfires on 295,734 acres of state land this year.

The strong winds are likely the source of ash that started falling on Monday evening. That also means clouds and even a slight chance of showers.
