Canada Wildfires Polluting Air In 13 U.S. States

Intense Canadian wildfires are blanketing the northeastern US in a dystopian haze, turning the air acrid, the sky yellowish gray and prompting warnings for vulnerable populations to stay inside, Kathy McCormack reported for the Associated Press (AP).

The effects of hundreds of wildfires burning across the western provinces of Quebec could be felt as far away as New York City and New England, blotting out skylines and irritating throats. US authorities issued air quality alerts.


Hazy conditions and smoke from the wildfires were reported across the Great Lakes region from Cleveland to Buffalo.



A smoky haze that hung over New York City much of the day Tuesday thickened in the late afternoon, obscuring views of New Jersey across the Hudson River and making the setting sun look like a reddish orb. In the Philadelphia area, dusk brought more of a lavender haze.


Overall, the wildfires have affected 13 US states.
