I have learned that the air quality due to the wildfires in N. Central WA has made the air in Spokane County extremely unhealthy…to levels not seen since Mt. St. Helens erupted in 1980. They are telling folks to stay indoors and close their windows. I know there are a few on here from that area, so just a heads up.
Very strange, the winds are driving all this, and areas to the south, like Tri-Cities/Pendleton actually cleared out today. But apparently not to the north.
My brother is in Spokane currently dropping off his son at college. He said the air quality was pretty bad. However, my brother and his family used to live in Hong Kong and would visit Beijing, China, and the air quality in that city was actually worse than what Spokane is experiencing.
