Sailing through smoke

Air quality “very unhealthy” in Jefferson County

A boater prepares to set sail late the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 15,2020, just off the beach at Fort Worden State Park after thick morning fog gave way to a brief period of sunshine and spots of blue sky not seen since last week.

Wildfire smoke continued to plague the region, causing “very unhealthy” air quality in Jefferson County and casting a haze that limited visibility to no more than a few miles.
