Why the sky turned orange?

Bay Area Air District-The region’s air pollution control agency concluded that the orange sky around the regions of San Francisco, Oregon, and Washington, are due to the smokes and ashes formed due to the fire that carry out the smokes to these cities. The smoke particles scattered caused the blue light to reflect from the sun, while allowing yellow orange light to surface. That caused the sky to look orange.

Many experts are saying that these types of destruction can be made less destructive if the policy makers discourage or ban development in the fire prone areas. And if the local leaders become more vigilant and take steps to help people evacuate or flee these situations in a very short notice.

Various reactions were posted on media on the orange skies of California:
