Camperdown and the wider Corangamite Shire shrouded in heavy smoke

CAMPERDOWN and the wider Corangamite Shire were shrouded in heavy smoke from the state’s ongoing bushfire crisis for three consecutive days this week.

Skipton was the first to be blanketed in smoke on Monday, with towns further south covered in the thick layer throughout Tuesday and Wednesday.

The phenomenon prompted a State Government warning for residents across the district to monitor their health, remain indoors if possible and switch air conditioners to ‘recycle’ or ‘recirculate’.

While the smoky conditions have eased, further incidents have not been ruled out.
