Minnesota and Wisconsin See Air Quality Warnings as Canadian Wildfire Smoke Drifts South

U.S.Minnesota and Wisconsin See Air Quality Warnings as Canadian Wildfire Smoke Drifts South

If you’re in the northern part of the Central United States and the skies look smoky, here’s why: Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin were under an air quality alert on Monday because of wildfire smoke from Canada.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency issued the alert for the southern portion of the state, which was set to expire at 11 p.m. Central time on Monday.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources issued an air quality alert on Monday for northwestern Wisconsin that was set to last through the day.

Fine particle levels were expected to reach the red air quality index category, the agency said, which also warned that was “a level considered unhealthy for everyone, across all of Minnesota.”

In those areas, officials said, everybody, and particularly sensitive people, should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion and should limit their time outdoors. Sensitive people include those with asthma, people with heart disease or high blood pressure and children and older adults.
