New York pollution to remain hazardous as no end in sight for Canada wildfire smoke
As additional dense smoke from the Canada deadly wildfire streamed south, New York City’s air quality remained in the “very unhealthy” condition.
According to experts, the pollution from the wildfires in Quebec might last until Thursday and possibly even into the weekend.
Over the past few days, as schools over the East Coast banned outdoor activities, Broadway performances were canceled, and airline flights were suspended, the Big Apple has been surrounded by a sci-fi-like orange glow.
According to the Air Quality Index (AQI), New York continues to have the world’s worst air quality among large cities. When readings reached 350, it was declared “hazardous” at that time.
Air quality warnings have been issued in at least 13 US states, affecting an estimated 115 million people.
More than 400 wildfires burning in Canada are causing smoke to move south, forcing large-scale evacuations in Quebec province and threatening the whole northeastern coast.
With almost 6.7 million acres already burned, Canadian officials issued a warning that this could be the worst wildfire season on record for the nation.
