Where is ALL this smoke coming from that we are experiencing in PG ???

Yeah, please tell us…is there danger? Smoke is just about ground level, very scary today and no news about our own city!!!!!!!

Winds are from the south, bringing the smoke in from the fires down there. Use towels etc. to block any windows, doors, etc. that may not be airtight-it helps!

Check weather channel for info on direction of wind, it will be changing soon, hang tight.

Go to the environment Canada website and click through and play with the animation links they have there.

Or this one.
