US Cities Face Toxic Air Crisis as Unprecedented Wildfires Ravage Canada

Unusual wildfires in Canada led to extremely poor air quality in United States cities. Residents of these cities have been experiencing the detrimental effects of the toxic air, making it difficult to breathe.

Toxic Air

According to the World Air Quality Index, the air quality in Chicago reached unhealthy levels on Tuesday, surpassing Beijing as the city with the worst air quality in the world.

The smoke from the wildfires in Canada reached Chicago early on Tuesday, causing the air to be toxic and dangerous to breathe.

In addition to Chicago, the air quality in Detroit, Michigan also reached hazardous levels due to the smoke. Other cities in the Midwest have also been affected.

AP reported that concerns about air quality have been raised in central and eastern areas of the United States, as well as the Great Lakes region. The smoke from the ongoing wildfires in Canada has been carried by the wind to these areas.

Worst Air Quality

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website stated that certain regions in Illinois, southern Wisconsin, and lower Michigan had the worst air quality in the United States.

Detroit, Chicago, and Milwaukee were classified by the EPA as having “very unhealthy” air quality.

The smoke from the Canadian wildfires is expected to reach New York City on Wednesday morning.

Earlier this month, the haze from Canada made New York City appear like a scene from an apocalyptic movie.

The smoke poses a significant health risk to the affected residents.
