I'm Henia Espinoza and this is your TFC News Now.
This smoky haze from Canadian wildfires not only blanketed Big Apple to near zero visibility at some point,
but also placed New York City on top of the list of the most polluted major cities in the world.
Officials in New York and in the Tri-State are urging residents to stay indoors
and limit or avoid outdoor activities for now.
All New Yorkers should limit outdoor activity to the greatest extent possible.
If you must be outside, we recommend wearing a mask, especially if you are elderly or a younger child.
Operations at the Philippine Consulate General in New York have also been suspended as of June 8.
But for these New Yorkers dining at this Filipino restaurant, life goes on despite the poor air quality index.
I think the last time I saw this much was back in 2001 during the 9-11 incident.
I noticed that half the people on the streets at least were wearing masks.
Like, oh, it's flashbacks from COVID-2020.
In sports, the Denver Nuggets have taken the lead in the NBA Finals 2-1
by beating the Miami Heat 109-94 in Miami on Wednesday night.
Thanks to yet another historic triple-double from Nikola Jokic and a 32-point triple-double performance from Jamal Murray,
the Nuggets easily dominated the Heat in the second half.
I felt this is by far our best game in the series.
Most complete game of the series.
And it's not because of the triple-doubles or, to your point, all the individual stats.
It's because we held that team to 94 points, 37 from the field, only 11 threes.
And to out-rebound somebody by 25 in a finals game, that's a significant number right there.
Miami's Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo combined for 50 points.
But the rest of the team had failed to make much of an impact.
I felt like at times, you know, some of those missed shots at the rim or in the paint,
the makeable shots that we've made, you know, the last several months or weeks,
that affected a little bit of our whatever going down the other end.
And that hasn't happened, you know, a lot.
And finally, we meet 28-year-old Filipina Adrian Reyes of Winnipeg, Manitoba,
who will be representing Canada in the Miss International Queen 2023 on June 24.
Now in its 17th year, it is considered the world's biggest beauty pageant for transgender women,
held in Pattaya City, Thailand.
Actually feeling really nervous and anxious,
but excited to raise our flag in the biggest transgender pageant in the world.
Adrian won her first national competition at the Miss Philippines Canada Queen Pride,
held in Calgary last year.
She says her advocacy is trans-visibility.
And those were the newsmaking headlines today.
