environment and, if applicable, Metro Vancouver
at 3:20 am PDT Sunday 30 August 2015.

      Okanagan Valley
      Similkameen
      Fraser Canyon
      Nicola
      South Thompson
      Shuswap

      Elk Valley.

Smoky skies advisory over the entire Okanagan Valley, north and South
Thompson, Similkameen, Fraser Canyon, Nicola, Shuswap and the entire
boundary and kootenay areas.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
==Discussion==
the ministry of environment, in collaboration with the interior
health authority, has issued a smoky skies advisory for the southern
interior and kootenay regions. Southerly winds have continued to
spread further north heavy plumes of smoke from the large wildfires
burning in Washington state, resulting in high concentrations of fine
particulates and poor air quality. While this episode is expected to
persist until a major shift in wind patterns and weather conditions,
smoke concentrations will vary widely as winds, fire behaviour and
temperatures change.

Avoid strenuous outdoor activities. If you are experiencing any of
the following symptoms, contact your health care provider: difficulty
in breathing, chest pain or discomfort, and sudden onset of cough or
irritation of airways. Exposure is particularly a concern for
infants, the elderly and those who have underlying medical conditions
such as diabetes, and lung or heart disease.


This advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
