Due to shifting winds we are expected to have significant smoke and low visibility in Los Angeles on Sunday, July 24 2016. At this point we’re not certain how long the smoke will stay in the area.
This smoke is coming from the “Sand Fire”. At the time of this article, the Sand Fire had charred 20,000 acres of land and caused mandatory evacuations in Santa Clarita, California. This fire broke out on Friday, July 22, 2016. Sand Fire updates are available via LAFD at 626-574-5208 or on Twitter using hashtag #SandFire
A beautiful photo of the smoke over DTLA emerged on Twitter last night. Take a look:
