Smoke from western wildfire causes East Coast mist, flaming sunset

Sacramento, America: Smoke emanating from dozens of wildfires in the western United States is spreading throughout the country – and even in Mexico, Canada and Europe.
While dangerous plains are forcing people inside the West Coast, residents thousands of miles away in the east are seeing unusually misty skies and remarkable sunsets.
Wildfires raced on the tinder-dry landscape in California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington are exceptional, but their long exposure to smoke is not unprecedented. Although there are only small pockets in the southeast US that are free of smog, experts say that smoking is a health concern for those who are away.
The sun turned into a perfect orange orb as it set in New York City on Tuesday. Its pictures sink behind the sky and the pictures shining from the leaves of the tree are covered on social media.
On Wednesday, New Jersey residents described a yellow tingle in the overcast skies, and weather forecasters were kept busy interpreting the event and predicting how long the conditions would last.
On the opposite coast, air quality conditions were among some of the worst recorded. Smoak closed the Golden Gate Bridge and left Portland and Seattle in a turbulent fog, as the crew found themselves trying to keep the flames out of more homes and even the wilderness of widespread Huh.
Scientists said Wednesday that satellite images showed that smoke from wild animals traveled about 5,000 miles (8,000 km) to Britain and other parts of northern Europe.
The current weather system, which favors a strong wind across high levels of the atmosphere, is to blame for smoke penetration, experts explained.
Matt Solum with the National Weather Service said, “We always line up to get the right combination of adequate fumes and upper level jet streams at such times, so we’re seeing it again.” Regional Operations Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“This is definitely not the first time.”
There may be some easing of the fog later this week as a storm system is expected to move into the Pacific Northwest and may affect conditions that help smoke travel across the country. But Solum said that there is always a chance of more smoke and mist moving around.
“Just because of all the wildfires that are going on, it’s probably going to continue for a while,” he said. “Depending on how the upper level winds are set up, you can have that smoke ebb and flow.”
Kim Noelton, a senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council in New York City, said she woke up to a red sunrise and more haze on Wednesday.
She said that millions of people who live beyond the flames can reduce air quality because it is not uncommon for wildfire smoke to travel hundreds of miles.
Although the effects on health have diminished and smoke travels into the atmosphere, Naughton and his colleagues stated that the resulting haze can exacerbate current problems such as asthma and increase ozone pollution.
