Due to the wildfires that broke out in Canada this past week, Delaware’s air quality is currently worse than L.A.’s. As seen on Delaware Reddit, a graph shows the areas of poor air quality in the United States. Los Angeles, California is known to have poor air quality due to the region’s warm, sunny climate turning tailpipe and smokestack emissions into smog. The mountain ranges trap the pollution in the air.

The National Weather Service has reported that the fires and smoke coming from Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada has affected the air quality in the east coast of the United States, including Delaware. The thick haze is most noticeable in sunrises and sunsets.

Nova Scotia’s current wildfire is the largest wildfire the country has battled, to date according to BBC. “The fire has burned about 20,000 hectares, with flames reaching nearly 328 feet high.” The fire that has broke out in Halifax is still blazing.

Air quality in Delaware will continue to be poor until the fires are settled and the smoke dissipates.
