Smoke Visible in Southern WA

Smoke Alert Issued From Bunbury to Augusta

The Department of Parks and Wildlife has issued a smoke alert for Bunbury to Augusta.

Smoke will be visible until late this evening. The smoke is the result of three prescribed burns being carried out in the South West today.

What To Do:  

If the smoke is particularly thick, it is recommended people shut doors and windows and turn off air-conditioners.

Smoke may reduce visibility on some roads and motorists should take care, turn on headlights and travel at appropriate speeds when travelling in these areas.

People with asthma and pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses should follow their pre-prepared treatment plan.

People with conditions exacerbated by smoke should take precautions in line with their medical advice for these circumstances.
