Gov. Kathy Hochul is urging New Yorkers to stay inside, and recommending school districts cancel outdoor activities.

It comes as a blanket of thick, smoky haze covered the Capital Region for another day on Wednesday.

The smoke is coming from wildfires in Quebec.

An air quality alert – which was supposed to expire Wednesday at midnight – has been extended to Thursday at midnight.
