A Smoky 4th of July in Southeast Georgia

Portions of Southeast Georgia are dealing with thick smoke on their 4th of July.

The smoke is from the Honey Prairie wildfire. Southerly winds have spread the smoke from Clinch and Ware counties up to Alma, Baxley, Blackshear, and Jesup. The heaviest smoke will be in and around Waycross, Needdham, Manor, and Dixie Union. Visibilities are as low as 1 mile in some locations.

Those with respiratory conditions should stay indoors in the air conditioning as much as possible. Also, keep the windows closed to prevent smoke from entering your home.

The smoke should continue to drift to the Northwest today.
