DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 0200Z June 08, 2006.
Eastern Quebec: A very large fire burning in the Sept-Iles Port-Cartier Province Wildlife Reserve is producing a large area of very thick smoke. The smoke is moving mostly west northwest across Quebec. Earlier in the day smoke was also moving southeast. The smoke that was moving southeast is beginning to push west northwest as the system off the northeast US coast is having a large influence on smoke movement. Florida: In north Broward county, a fire is producing an area of moderately dense smoke moving northeast. Smoke is moving across the counties of Palm Beach and Martin and then into the Atlantic. Alabama/Georgia: A fire on the border of Cleburne and Calhoun counties in Alabama is emitting an area of moderately dense smoke moving into the counties of Carroll and Haralson counties in Georgia.
