Calgary air quality advisory continues for second straight day

According to an NWS forecast discussion, haze higher in the atmosphere is from wildfires across south OR and northern California.

Visibility in the capital region Wednesday morning was very limited as the sky turned a dark and dirty brown colour overnight from smoke and particulate matter.

"We had easterly flow, northeasterly flow bringing smoke from British Columbia and from Eastern Washington down into Puget Sound", he said. Of particular concern, said the release, is exposure for infants, the elderly and those with diabetes, and lung or heart disease.

Over 400 fires are actively burning in the province and the smoke they produce isn't only blocking the sun, it also has the potential to affect your health.

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality gave its Air Quality Index a major overhaul after heavy use during last year's intense wildfires caused the site to crash multiple times.

According to Environment Canada, the hazy conditions will continue throughout the week.

The air quality around Puget Sound is just as bad if not worse than some of the most polluted places on the planet.
