Smoke from wildfires is blanketing the usually picturesque views of Hope and its surrounding natural beauty.

On Sunday, the air quality index reached its highest level, a 10, prompting Environment Canada to issue warnings of fine particulate matter in the air. The cause is wildfire smoke, from some fires burning as near as Mt. Hicks less than 10 kilometres from Agassiz.

The special air quality statement advises people with chronic conditions, as well as infants, young children, pregnant women and the elderly should take extra care under these conditions.

“If you are experiencing symptoms such as chest discomfort, shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing, follow the advice of your healthcare provider,” the statement reads.

How are you coping with the wildfire smoke as you go about your day? Let us know by taking our poll:
