WHERE THERE'S SMOKE: New York City in Orange Haze from Canadian Wildfires [SEE IT]

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.07.23

As 150 wildfires continue to rage in Quebec —110 of which are out of control —air quality in the Northeast United States has become the worst in the world.

New York City now has worse air quality than Doha in Qatar, Dhaka in Bangladesh, Lahore in Pakistan, and more.

From The New York Post:

“Unhealthy” air and smoky conditions are expected to linger over the five boroughs until Sunday, as Mayor Eric Adams Tuesday urged New Yorkers with heart or breathing issues to “limit … outdoor activities to the absolute necessities.”

By 10 p.m. Tuesday night, air quality in parts of the Big Apple reached a “very unhealthy” level, according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s index, and the air quality in the five boroughs was the poorest of any major city in the world, according to IQair.

“We’ll be in this same kind of weather pattern through today, and tomorrow as well,” Fox Weather Meteorologist Stephen McCloud told The Post. “By Sunday night we should start to see improvement as a new storm system from the west approaches and starts to move this storm system out.”

“Once that storm system from the west starts to come in, it’s going to change the wind direction. Once the wind direction changes, the smoke will not be able to come down into parts of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic,” he added.

Videos of the New York City sky are being shared widely on social media:
