Amid Wildfires, Air Quality in Sacramento Region Continues to Suffer

Wildfires Prompt Bay Area Air Quality Advisory Through Thursday

Air quality advisory extended in Clark County

Alberta Health Services has issued a precautionary air quality advisory for Alberta because of the smoke that is drifting into the province from the wildfires in B.C.

Environment Canada says the smoke will likely last through Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.

Residents and visitors are advised to take precautions against possible health concerns.

Track current air quality conditions here. The air quality index is expected to be unhealthy for sensitive groups through at least the rest of the week, meaning special care should be taken for young children, the elderly, pregnant women and anyone with lung or heart illnesses. "If you have to go out then keep your windows closed and recirculate the air in the vehicle so you're not really using the outside air that much", said Wasim Naqshbandi, Manager Respiratory Homecare Solutions. People in the impacted areas may also experience coughing, throat irritation, headaches and shortness of breath.
