With certain areas of British Columbia under a travel advisory due to raging wildfires, people are taking to social media to show just how apocalyptic-looking the situation actually is.

During the month of August, several parts of B.C. have dealt with scorching temperatures under a heat dome, which has led to more fires and, in turn, more smokey skies and poor-quality air conditions.

As of Monday, August 16, there were 266 active fires burning across the province, resulting in some seriously startling pics.

Photos taken during the afternoon on Sunday, August 15 look like they were shot at dusk due to the smokey sky.

Someone tweeted about being able to smell the wildfires from inside a plane during a flight through "hell."

It's so surreal that it doesn't even look like Canada.

From otherworldly yellows to sinister red skies.

If you live in B.C., remember to check DriveBC for road closures and to visit EmergencyMapBC for any alerts or orders in effect.

Stay safe.
