...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

DID YOU NOTICE HOW HAZY THE SKY LOOKED TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING...AND WONDER WHERE ALL THAT HAZE WAS COMING FROM? WELL
...THE ANSWER MAY SURPRISE YOU. BELIEVE IT OR NOT...THE HAZY LOOK
IN OUR SKY WAS ACTUALLY THE RESULT OF DOZENS OF WILDFIRES THAT
WERE BURNING UP IN CANADA. THE SMOKE FROM THESE FIRES...OVER
NORTHERN PARTS OF SASKATCHEWAN...WAS BEING CAUGHT UP BY THE UPPER
LEVEL WIND FLOW AND FUNNELED SOUTHEASTWARD INTO THE UNITED
STATES...ESPECIALLY THE MIDWEST...AND TENNESSEE AND OHIO RIVER
VALLEYS. VISIBLE SATELLITE PHOTOS FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON CLEARLY
SHOWED THIS PLUME OF SMOKE...AND ITS TRAJECTORY INTO THE UNITED
STATES.
