A health advisory was issued Wednesday by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District: "Due to active wildfires and changing wind patterns, air quality could be impacted for many days to come". Residents affected by heavy smoke must seek shelter in buildings with filtered air or move to areas outside the region which has been affected by wildfire smoke.

They encourage residents who see or smell smoke in the area to avoid outdoor activity or exercise.

"We are now seeing winds out of the north-west which are pushing the smoke out. It's going to be really bad".

Firefighters from across California and neighboring states are working feverishly to contain the fires that have resulted in multiple casualties and destroyed more than 2,000 structures.

"We are proud to team up with all of the Bay Area professional sports teams to support North Bay disaster relief efforts."

San Francisco hospitals are already receiving patients in their emergency rooms, complaining of respiratory issues likely related to the smoke, said Rachael Kagan, of the San Francisco Department of Health. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced by voluntary and ordered evacuations and Sonoma County officials reported that 285 people remain missing.
