Smoke From Wildfires in Western US Impacts New York Tri-State Area

Smoke and haze from wildfires in the western United States drifted across the New York–New Jersey–Connecticut area on Tuesday, July 20, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

The smoke moved east as large wildfires, fanned by extreme heat and drought, burned in several states including California and Oregon, where the Bootleg Fire had burned over 388,000 acres.

The NWS of New York said the smoke and haze would filter the sunshine in the region on Tuesday. Officials issued an air-quality health advisory for New York state on Tuesday. Credit: US National Weather Service New York via Storyful
