The air quality health index provides hourly air quality readings and related health messages.

Some parts of the province (including Castlegar, Prince George, Quesnel and Williams Lake) are rated at very high risk (10+) on the air health quality index. Some reports on social media are showing photos and video of it looking like it is a night time sky at 9 a.m. in Prince George.
