2018-08-23 05:48
Smoke from wildfires in British Columbia hung over Vancouver on August 21 in this footage captured from a hill north of the city. Air quality alerts for much of British Columbia were issued on August 13, over a week ago. On August 21, air quality health alerts said risk was high to very high in metro Vancouver. CBC predicted a change in weather patterns would blow smoke out of Vancouver starting on Thursday, August 23. Three hundred twenty-four new wildfires started in British Columbia in the past month, the BC Wildfire Service said. On August 21, 30 percent of these fires were not under control.
