Fla wildfire smoke drifting across region

Smoke from massive wildfires in southeast Georgia and north Florida is spreading gradually into south Alabama, northwest Florida and southeast Mississippi.

National Weather Service meteorologists in Mobile, Alabama in a special weather statement Monday, said smoky conditions likely will reduce visibility anywhere from two to five miles, especially late tonight as the smoke becomes mixed with fog.

Forecasters advise people with respiratory ailments to stay indoors as much as possible today and Tuesday.

The wildfire that raced through the Okefenokee Swamp in southeast Georgia and into Florida has burned over 102-thousand acres in Florida. It was started by lightning more than a week ago.
