Smoke from Canadian wildfires is impacting U.S. producers, all the way down to Tennessee

Global weather forecasts played a big role in the markets overnight. In the United States, multiple areas of the country from New England to the Midwest are dealing with poor air quality from Canadian wildfires.

Flames have taken over areas of eastern Canada and forced evacuations in Nova Scotia and Coastal Quebec. Right now, there are more than 400 active fires scorching Canada’s countryside, and more than half of those are classified as “out of control.”

As many as 26,000 people are under evacuation orders.
