Smoke from Australia’s bushfire crisis has blanketed major cities of Sydney and Adelaide.
In Sydney, locals woke up to smoke which appeared worse than a fire-driven haze that was seen on Tuesday.
Health officials issued warnings as air quality surpassed hazardous levels and some residents wore face masks.
Fire conditions classified as” severe” or higher have affected all six states in the past week.
Six people have died last month, in massive bushfires which have caused the greatest damage in the eastern states of New South Wales and Queensland.
