Information- Drift Smoke Affecting Snowy Monaro.
Residents and visitors to the Snowy Monaro are likely to see and/or smell drift smoke today and possible over coming days. Some areas may receive it particularly thick. Please be assured that we have no active fires within Snowy Monaro. This drift smoke is coming from fires in the Gippsland area of Victoria under current weather conditions, which is approx. 300kms directly away, which highlights how far it can travel.

Why is the web site Fires Near Me showing a fire at Ando as out of control if you have no fires within Snowy Monaro. Does Ando belong to another district?

Thanks for the update. 👍
