Smoke advisory remains in effect for Riverside County

Smoke can be seen while on the Ferry crossing to Nanaimo

Relief will not come as quickly for B.C. residents, with the air quality index showing smoky conditions will improve only marginally by Tuesday. At this time, air quality in Santa Barbara County is expected to continue being affected through the end of this week.

Weather forecasters are hoping we start to see some smoke clearing and a chance of rain with the next system coming in Monday evening.

Portland's air quality was literally off the chart yesterday. Stay alert to local conditions by visiting www.ourair.org/todays-air-quality or fire.airnow.gov.

Davis also advised day camps in smoke-affected areas to suspend outside activities, such as hiking or picnics.

Slovenian woman cut off her hand for insurance payout
She stood to gain more than €1 milion (£900,000, $1.16 million) in insurance payouts if successful. I misplaced my hand on the age of 20. "Only I know how it happened", she was quoted as saying.

"If you can see smoke, soot, or ash, or you can smell smoke, pay attention to your immediate environment and take precautions to safeguard your health", said county Health Officer Dr. Muntu Davis.

Missoula City County Health Department Air Quality Specialist Sarah Coefield has been tracking the smoke since the fires began. Most of the smoke is kind of hung up west of the Continental Divide, so once you get past the divide, it gets better.

"People with pre-existing health conditions, respiratory infections such as COVID-19, older adults, pregnant women and infants, children, and sensitive individuals are more likely to experience health effects from smoke exposure". Symptoms include repeated coughing, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, wheezing, chest tightness or pain, palpitations, and nausea or unusual fatigue or lightheadedness.
