The AirNow Map image above also supports this claim as the AQI within the central United States has reached a moderate level (Yellow, 51-100).

The Canada Hotspot Map shows that there are multiple hot spots in the lower central region of Canada. These hotspots could be possible areas that the smoke is originating from.
