Smoke Plumes in Eastern USA and increased PM in the Western States

From the AirNow image, it is evident that there was code orange (unhealthy for sensitive groups) observed in Parts of the Rocky Mouth States and Pacific Northwest (top left). Within the Pacific Southwest, the AQI was recorded within code yellow which resulted from increased PM in the regions with unknown origins. The HMS image shows fires in Florida which generated very localized smoke plumes (top right). Fires were additionally observed in Texas, but the PM levels were still good overall (bottom left).
