California smoke to reach Dallas and Virginia

one year ago

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Monday that wind could carry the smoke from the deadly California Fires to Dallas and Virginia depending on the wind direction.

The forecast adds that even if the smoke were to reach these regions, it should disperse as it carries, and that it is not a big concern.

Previously, smoke from the fires reached Michigan, but it is not unusual for major wildfires smoke to reach the Great Lake region.

Communities in the Sacramento Valley and Bay Area have suffered from the dirty air, which has topped India and China since last Thursday.

Information from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District shows that the local air quality levels are in the "very unhealthy" range.
