Record-Breaking Bad Air?

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Some of the worst air pollution seen in the Canton area in perhaps decades.

Smoke from wildfires in Ontario pushed the Air Quality Index in Stark County to the low 300s Wednesday evening.

They’re believed to have been the highest reading in the state.

When the weather pattern changed during the night Tuesday night and there was no more rain to wash anything away, the AQI started rising.

Outdoor activities like the city’s baseball and softball games were canceled Wednesday evening.
