A new forecast from @nws shows that smoke from the California wildfires is traveling thousands of miles to New York City and further.
While it’s staying in higher levels of the sky in places like New York, if the small particles of dust get into the air you breathe, which is more likely for those of us in California, it can cause respiratory issues and symptoms like a sinus infection.
Look for weather warnings, stay inside when you can (maybe no morning runs outside this week), and be sure to dust your windowsills – with a damp microfiber cloth is best! Even with your windows closed, dust can sneak in and settle on small ledges.
We also want to take a second to say thank you to all of the first responders who are working to contain and put out all the wildfires burning across the country. We appreciate everything they are doing to protect us and our natural resources.
