Air Quality Health Index set to hit 10+ again in Calgary

(Kaitlin Lee, 660 NEWS)

It’s another smoky day in Calgary — in fact — the city is climbing to Environment Canada’s highest level on its Air Quality Health Index: 10+ or Very High Risk.

According to a pollution tracking cell phone app, S**t! I Smoke, breathing the air in Cowtown is like smoking more than 10 cigarettes in a day.

The good news is, things should start to clear up overnight into Friday as a cold front with some rain moves in, though as of Thursday morning, Environment Canada’s AQHI was still calling for a moderate health risk of 6 for Friday afternoon.
