DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1745Z July 8, 2006.
Cloud cover is hindering satellite based detection of the fires that have been seen for days in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Smoke can be seen in a thin swath from West Virginia through western Pennsylvania and New England to central Maine before becoming obscured by clouds. Some residual thin to moderate smoke is also visible in the morning imagery over Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
