Smoke from the Swan Lake fire will reduce visibilities to one quarter mile or less at times, according to the advisory. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享8/21/19 – 6:00am Sean Baines with the National Weather Service: “Smoke will likely be dense along the highway along Cooper Landing to Sterling along the highway. Not only should be people driving be careful, but those with respiratory problems may have difficulty breathing when outside and are advised to use caution.” In addition, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Division of Air Quality has issued an Air Quality Advisory that includes the Kenai Peninsula due to wildfire smoke from the Swan Lake fire. The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a Dense Smoke Advisory, which is in effect until 10pm Wednesday. The advisory stretches from the Sterling and Seward Highway junction southward to Seward. Generally, worse conditions occur overnight and during the early morning hours, as the atmosphere cools and brings smoke to the surface. During the day, surface heating will generally cause the smoke to lift, temporarily improving air quality, according to the release. A dense smoke advisory means fires will create widespread smoke, limiting visibilities. If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you in case a sudden stop is needed. Air quality monitors have been set up near the fire area.
