A plume of smoke turns Wednesday sunrise into an eerie deep orange glow and ash falling from the sky - CBS, San Francisco

AUCKLAND (CBS SF) – A historic bushfire outbreak in Northern California left a massive layer of smoke over the San Francisco Bay Area, turning the sky early Wednesday into an eerie dark orange haze and covering cars, courtyards and homes in layers of ash.

To date, a series of wildfires have burned more than 2 million acres of land, including fires in the Bear and Creek area, now raging east of the San Francisco Bay Area. Smoke from the fires covered Wednesday morning with a layer of darkness.

Fire environment updates

Spare the Air’s record streak of warnings for the region came in its fourth week, and Wednesday was a record 23rd straight day.

“Abnormal Labor Day weekend heatwaves, combined with tailpipes and lingering bushfire smoke, are expected to degrade air quality in the region,” said Jack Broadbent, executive director of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

Late Wednesday morning, the Air District also extended its Spare the Air warning to at least Friday, hitting a record 25 consecutive days of such warnings. The previous record was 16 days in 2018 when a fire camp broke through Butte County.

The district also urged residents to drive less and stay indoors to protect their health on days when foggy and smoky.

Meanwhile, the National Meteorological Service said there was no immediate assistance en route.

“The bad news for Wednesday is that smoke and haze will remain in the Bay Area and the Central Coast due to wildfires in California and the Pacific Northwest,” forecasters said. “Satellite imagery showed smoke dropping along the coastline.”

“Suspended smoke will descend closer to the surface and can lead to darkening of the sky and deterioration of air quality today,” – wrote NWS forecasters on Twitter. “This is outside the scope of our models, so we rely on your reports!”

San Francisco Mayor London Breed has used social media to calm any concerns.

“I know people are worried about the orange sky we all woke up to this morning,” she tweeted. “The reason is a combination of fog and smoke from wildfires up and down the West Coast.”

At least one outdoor attraction, the Auckland Zoo, has announced it is closing for a day due to smoke. People with tickets must contact the zoo to re-book another day for a visit within the next 30 days, the zoo said on its Instagram account.

Social media was filled with locals who posted photos and comments about the smoky sky.

Roqo tweeted: “7:30 AM in San Francisco. It is the light and color of the sky. To be honest, I panicked a little. I thought it was 3 AM. “

Lisa Mitska Water also noted the darkening of the sky: “Good morning. Yesterday the sun was pink, today the whole sky. “

Others also posted photos.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
