Smoky air returns to Seattle through at least Wednesday

Smoky air returns to Seattle through at least Wednesday

Two women's college soccer matches scheduled at Gonzaga University in Spokane and Eastern Washington University in Cheney were canceled Sunday because of the poor air quality, university officials said.

The MPCA said the smoke plume is from fires in British Columbia, Alberta and northwestern Ontario.

A special air quality statement issued by Environment Canada continues today, with many parts of Metro Vancouver listed as "very high risk" on the provincial air quality health index.

The NWS says this batch of dense smoke is expected to remain in the Yakima Valley and surrounding areas through Sunday evening and possibly into Monday.

Parker Solar Probe launched on sun-study mission

Instead, Henderson said, people in areas with smoky, hazy skies should try to limit the amount of time they spend outdoors as much as possible.

Thousands of BC firefighters are getting help from colleagues from other Canadian provinces as well as from fire crews from Mexico, Australia and New Zealand.

Reduced visibility caused by the smoke and haze is making it hard for officials to detect new fires and for crews to fight existing wildfires from the air. Residents of the town about 325 miles north of Vancouver posted images to social media in the morning hours, long after sunrise, to show the world what their city looks like.

A cold front has shifted wind direction and smoke from the British Columbia wildfires is now shifting stateside.
