Smoke blan­kets Drumheller val­ley last week

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS -

Drumheller suf­fered ex­tremely poor air qual­ity over the last week as over 545 wild­fires in B.C. cov­ered much of the prov­ince in heavy smoke. The air qual­ity in­dex for Calgary and Ed­mon­ton hit 10 with En­vi­ron­ment Canada is­su­ing spe­cial air qual­ity state­ments for much of the week. Be­cause of the fires Calgary has had the smok­i­est year ever, with over 313 hours of smoke filled air in the year – barely beat­ing out 2017.
