See Pics of New York Turning Apocalyptic Orange from Canada Fires
While many of us in Upstate New York dealt with smog and smoke on Tuesday from the Canadian wildfires, take a look at what residents of New York City dealt with throughout the day today.
According to reports, air quality downstate was the worst since at least the 1980s Wednesday afternoon as a thick wave of orange smoke and ash left many from New York "hazed and confused."
On a normal day in New York, the air index is about 100.
Officials said the city’s air quality index had risen to 353 out of 500 and was considered to be “very hazardous".
And many of these images capture the reasons why.
