wildfireSmokeIndex

The Tomorrow.io wildfire smoke index conveys risk that an area may be exposed to elevated particulate matter concentrations (PM2.5) from nearby fires. The index focuses on areas in the direct path of the initial smoke plume, but does not include risk from background smoke that accumulates over the course of several days.

0: No risk.
1: Minor risk - Concentrations of particulate matter may increase due to nearby wildfires, but should be of little risk to the population.
2: Moderate smoke concentrations possible - This area may experience increases in PM2.5 concentrations that could be risky to those who are unusually sensitive to pollution.
3: Significant smoke concentrations possible - Particulate matter concentrations could be significant enough that those at high risk could have adverse health affects.
4: Major smoke concentrations probable - This area is at high risk of smoke concentrations that could have adverse affects for the general population. Those in unusually sensitive groups should take precautions.
5: Extreme smoke concentrations likely - PM2.5 concentrations are likely to be high enough that everyone is at risk for health effects due to the poor air quality.
