I hope admins/mods don’t mind the link, but I feel it’s important and is a government link to check the current air quality in your location. Just change the location to yours.
If possible, maybe pin it or make a post for the link.

My phone has a weather app and it gives air qualityJune 8, 2023 12:29 pm at 12:29 pm #2197946
I live in the West and wildfire smoke is nothing to take lightly. Last summer I had almost a full month of this dense smoke (and ash) during some of the hottest days of the summer.
When you are impacted by this smoke check your ACs, if possible set them to intake the air from the room and not the outside. When the event is over check the filters on your HVAC home systems and your vehicle.June 8, 2023 3:26 pm at 3:26 pm #2198046
This is probably the best place to put my question (not interested in starting a new one)
I’ve heard that exposure to this smoke (air quality) for 24 hours is like smoking either 6 or 12 cigarettes
If so why aren’t birds and outdoor animals dying left and right?June 8, 2023 4:00 pm at 4:00 pm #2198081n0mesorahParticipant
How much exposure?
I am seeing dying birds.June 8, 2023 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #2198098
Where are you located? I see a lot of birds flying aroundJune 8, 2023 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #2198117GadolhadorahParticipant
“I am seeing dying birds…”
You must be looking at the Republican budget plan for FY 24. They have proposed defunding PBS which would likely result in Big Bird (and the Muppets) being niftar.June 8, 2023 7:42 pm at 7:42 pm #2198145
Never thought this thread would get political 🙄June 8, 2023 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #2198157n0mesorahParticipant
Near Washington NJ.
The air is much clearer now.
Plenty more birds alive than dead!June 8, 2023 10:14 pm at 10:14 pm #2198159GadolhadorahParticipant
CA: You underestimate the political power of the Muppets
On a serious note, as Amil Zola noted, if there is a silver lining in these few days of air pollution in the Northeast, its that it provides those of us on the east coast a sense of what folks on the west coast have been living with for years. We were hiking in the Columbia River gorge (between Washington and Oregon) in the Summer of 2021 and encountered some of the most incredibly polluted air from fires in BC and Washington state and the locals told us it wasn’t nearly as bad as some of their prior fire smoke episodes.June 8, 2023 10:17 pm at 10:17 pm #2198166
Has anyone bothered to report dead birds to your local Audubon group?June 8, 2023 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #2198167Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
Coffee, did anyone in your ‘hood got out masks or is this still asur as minhag goyim?June 8, 2023 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #2198173
Has anyone checked with their local Audubon Soc, regarding bird deaths from smoke in your area?June 9, 2023 8:12 am at 8:12 am #2198230
Never thought of that, I don’t even know where my local Audubon society is!
I work in an MO neighborhood and live in a mixed neighborhood so not sure what you’re getting atJune 10, 2023 10:57 pm at 10:57 pm #2198510
Coffee Addict, just Google. I’m on an internet group with my local Audubon people. Locally we’re seeing a big decline of our bird population most likely avian flu.
Gadolhadorah: I’m glad you got to see the Gorge. It is magnificent. Unfortunately 2021 was a horrid year for smoke and fire out here. Many of us didn’t think it could get worse, but 2022 beat it hands down. We had falling ash for a couple of weeks with temps in the 90-100F range. Many of the wineries took a hit since the smoke spoiled the grape harvest.
