Hazy Skies in Missouri from Western Wildfires

(Farmington) Smoke carried from wildfires ravaging the western United States, thousands of miles away, is filling the skies above Missouri, creating a haze and injecting intensified color into sunsets.

The National Weather Service says the smoke scatters the light differently.

The fires out west have scorched more than 6-thousand square miles in California and Oregon, killing at least 34 people in those two states.
