KAMLOOPS — The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, along with Interior Health have expanded the smoky skies advisory in several areas.

Those areas include, Cariboo (North and South), Chilcotin, 100 Mile, North Thompson, South Thompson, and Shuswap.

Air Quality Meteorologist Ralph Adams explained in a news release that, "smoke concentrations will vary widely as winds, fire behaviour and temperatures change."

Those with medical conditions are reminded to avoid outdoor activities, and to contact a heath provider if you are experiencing difficulty in breathing, chest pain or discomfort, and sudden onset of cough or irritation of airways.
