...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

...SMOKEY SKIES ACROSS WESTERN NEW YORK...

SMOKE FROM WILDFIRES ACROSS NORTHERN PORTIONS OF ALBERTA AND
SASKATCHEWAN ARE BEING PICKED UP BY WINDS SOME FIVE TO TEN
THOUSAND FEET OFF THE GROUND AND BEING TRANSPORTED ACROSS THE
CANADIAN PRAIRIES TO THE GREAT LAKES REGION. VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS THAT THIS SMOKE HAS MADE ITS WAY ACROSS THE LOWER
GREAT LAKES TO WESTERN NEW YORK.

THIS IS GIVING THE SKIES OVER WESTERN NEW YORK A HAZY...MILKY
WHITE APPEARANCE. THE LAYER OF SMOKE ALOFT WILL CREATE A BEAUTIFUL
SUNSET THIS EVENING WITH THE SKY BECOMING MUCH MORE RED THAN
USUAL. THIS WILL BE AN EXCELLENT WAY TO SET THE STAGE FOR
BEAUTIFUL FIREWORKS DISPLAYS AS CIVIL TWILIGHT GIVES WAY TO
DARKNESS.
