ALERT! Smoke from Russian Siberian forest fires traveled across Bering Sea to US, Canada

The smoke from over 400 forest fires in Siberia reached Alaska and portions of the west coast of Canada by July 31, according to NASA.

The Russian regions of Irkutsk, Buryatia, Sakha and Krasnoyarsk have declared states of emergency as the smoke chokes cities downwind, according to the Associated Press. All smoke can be hazardous, especially for the young or elderly.

However, NASA scientists don’t believe the smoke will be traveling low enough in the U.S. to impact air quality.

It’s a pest problem that residents of one Scarborough street have been dealing with for months but now after one woman was bitten by a rat, they’re demanding the city take action.

“In the last two months we’ve seen nothing but rats” Susan Cook said.

“Morning, noon and night. Rats all the time.”

On Wednesday night, Cook was trying to pick some vegetable from her garden when she felt a sharp pain on the top of her hand.

When she looked down she saw she was bleeding and saw a rat staring back at her.

Cook was taken to hospital by ambulance and put on a high dose of antibiotics. She’s also going to begin a course of rabies shots on Thursday night.
