Vancouver's Smokey Skies Have Finally Cleared But Other Parts Of BC Are Still Hazy

After evidence of U.S. wildfires blew up to Canada in recent weeks, Vancouver's smokey skies have cleared but the rest of the province isn't quite seeing blue yet.

Metro Vancouver ended its Air Quality Advisory for the region on Saturday, September 19.

Air quality has improved due to cleaner marine air flowing into the region.

Metro Vancouver's first alert was on September 8 and for almost two weeks the city was in an unrecognizable haze.

While Vancouver's in the clear now, Environment Canada is advising regions in southeastern B.C. that it's not over yet.

There has been an improvement overall, but there is still wildfire smoke in many areas like the Okanagan Valley and the Kootenays.
