Smoke Over Southeastern Mexico

15.7N 92.8W

Mexico – April 25th, 2013

Smoke from fires in southeastern Mexico hangs in the air over the region, amidst dotted popcorn clouds. Smoke is an important hazard of fires, and is a prime cause of respiratory illness in humans as well as livestock in heavily burned areas. It can also affect health far from the source, as it is carried by winds.

Here, the smoke can be seen spreading southward over the Pacific Ocean. However, in mid-April smoke from southern Mexico fires was reported over the Gulf of Mexico and northward up to the Mexico-Texas border, with several air quality monitoring stations along the border reported unhealthy concentrations.
