Canada’s wildfires send Norwalk smoky air

(Harold F. Cobin)

NORWALK, Conn. — The sun rose bright orange Tuesday morning over Norwalk, as its light filtered through heavy smoke in the atmosphere from wildfires in Canada.

The national AirNow Fire and Smoke Map showed the air quality in Norwalk and the surrounding area was either unhealthy (red boxes) or unhealthy for sensitive groups (orange boxes) due to smoke from wildfires in Canada. The map is produced by the Interagency Wildland Fire Air Quality Response Program, with Connecticut data provided by the Dept. of Energy and Environmental Protection.

    Field trips were cancelled because of this. Because outdoor air can’t possibly get in a school building, right? How long before another mask mandate. But, at least I guess the kids are getting the message….live in fear, perpetually.
