As the Fourth of July weekend approaches, tens of millions of Americans are heading off today to either sandy beaches or resort communities in the mountains. Some folks are staying home or traveling short distances because 'Bidenomics' has miserably failed and bankrupted mid/low-tier households who can no longer afford an Airbnb or hotel in a resort area. But the one thing in common that millions across the Mid-Atlantic and up and down the Northeast regions are all experiencing into the holiday weekend is the lingering wildfire smoke from Canada.
The National Weather Service issued air quality alerts over parts of the Midwest, Great Lakes, central Appalachians, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic through the weekend.
"Canadian wildfire smoke is expected to continue impacting portions of the northeastern quadrant of the U.S. over the next few days," NWS wrote in a Friday morning update.
NWS had some good news: "However, air quality is expected to slowly improve due to a combination of thunderstorm activity and dispersion of the smoke as we head into the weekend."
Still, toxic air quality alerts stretch from Michigan to Ohio, West Virginia to Pennsvyina to Maryland, Washington, DC, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and into the lower New England area.
The unhealthy air is terrible for people with heart or lung disease, older adults, children, and teens. Pittsburgh had the worst air quality this morning.
Instead of blaming 'climate change' for everything... Maybe Canada's 500 raging wildfires have resulted from bad fire management over the last few decades. Plus, it's an El Nino year...
