On Wednesday some Air Quality Index readings were in the Very Unhealthy category or worse
Smoke from bushfires in Victoria, Australia has degraded the air quality to levels that are dangerous in some areas.
If the Air Quality Index used by Air-Quality.com for the map above is the same used by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air quality in the east corner of Victoria near Mallacoota is off the scale, beyond “hazardous”, with an air quality index of 769 at one location.
Mallacoota is the community that had to be evacuated by Navy ships after fires trapped over 4,000 residents and holiday makers.
