Fires in Florida Continue to Produce Light Density Smoke

The West Mims Fires originally started in Georgia, but continues to produce remnant light density which has migrated southward to generate enough coverage to blanket Florida's east coast (MODIS Aqua, top left). Although not as active as the above fire, the International Fires in Florida continues with some light density smoke. Along with the fires in the East Coast, Texas when viewed by the NOAA satellites had some smoke coverage due to remnant smoke moving northward into the US from Mexico (NOAA, top right). AirNow shows the AQI across the US and this displays moderate levels in most of the states, with code orange along parts of the East Coast due to ongoing wildfires (bottom left).
