May 30, 2023

Lake Carmel FD reported that the smoke you are seeing and smelling in the area this afternoon is NOT due to a fire in our community.

"The smoke is coming from the Nova Scotia Wild Fires. Due to the smoke being low-altitude, it can be smelled while outdoors."

According to new reports, these levels are expected to exceed Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (USG) levels for a period of four hours.

How do Forest Fires in Nova Scotia Impact lower New York?

NYS says, "The smoke’s arrival from Nova Scotia is due to an unusual weather pattern that will bring easterly surface winds over New York. This weather pattern will allow the smoke plume south of Nova Scotia to move southern into New England and lower New York.
