Smoke From California Wildfires Reaches Flint + Michigan
Three deadly wildfires which have claimed more than 30 lives and forced over a quarter of a million people to evacuate their homes have been raging in California. Smoke from the fires is stretching across the US into Michigan with the thickest smoke wafting into an area just south of Flint.
Maps from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (including the one above) show smoke from the deadly fires over a significant portion of Michigan's Lower Peninsula. Smoke is expected to linger over Michigan for much of the day before it begins to clear out around 7 pm, according to NOAA.
