Intense Smoke From Canada Moves Into US

An extremely large area of heavy smoke in Canada was observed on Saturday and Sunday (HMS, top left). The smoke spans practically the entire country and extends into the United States, with heavy smoke in Montana, Wyoming, and Nebraska. In addition, light, remnant smoke is seen throughout the Rocky Mountains and Plain States. This smoke is clearly visible in the NASA WorldView image in the top right. This smoke is also having a clear effect on AQI, shown by the AirNow particulate matter AQI image shown on the bottom. Montana, one of the main states affected by the Canadian smoke, reached very unhealthy levels due to this concentrated smoke.
