Ormond by the Sea fires?

My family is scheduled to spend a week at the beach in Ormond By The Sea this Friday, June 24th. I've been hearing about the numerous wildfires in the area, and am freaking out!

Can someone please let me know what the air quality is like at the beaches (N. Ocean Shore Blvd area)? I have asthma, and it's too late to cancel our vacation or to purchase trip insurance. Thanks so much!!

The major fire over that way is near highway 40. I was in Ponce Inlet over the weekend (further south), and the smoke wasn't bad at all. If the winds shift, that will change. The last I have read, the Ormond fire was not fully contained yet. It is very dry, and there were some wild lightning storms over the weekend. I don't know if that started any more fires. You can monitor the local online news, but it will be hard to say what conditions will be like in a week. There have been days where the smoke from some of those fires has drifted into Orlando. If conditions are bad, you will know very quickly because it will smell like you are right next to a camp fire.
