Here’s How Our Smoke Rolled Into Tri-Cities [Satellite Images)
By way of the Environmental Protection Agency, and the website Washington Smoke Information, here's what it looked like from above when all that smoke from Canada and other Northwest fires rolled in. These photos are time lapse from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning.
Reporting local, state and federal agencies say smoke from a large British Columbia wildfire has blanketed the area, including Eastern Washington, and it's projected to hang over us for at least a few days.
Projected high pressure, which holds trapped air in place, will linger into the weekend, meaning it might be 4-5 days at least before the smoke is scoured away. It will gradually dissipate, but not fast enough for people with respiratory issues.
This smoke is affecting pretty much most of Washington state. Images courtesy of Washington Smoke Information website.
