Air Quality Alert

…AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT UNTIL 12 PM PDT FRIDAY FOR NORTHWEST
OREGON…

The Southwest Clean Air Agency and the Oregon Department of
Environmental Quality have issued an Air Quality Alert, which is in
effect until 12 PM PDT Friday.
A Smoke Air Quality Alert has been issued. Wildfires burning in the
region combined with forecast conditions will cause air quality to
reach unhealthy levels at times through Friday morning. For much of
the region, the worst conditions are expected to continue through the
day Tuesday, with some improvement through the middle part of the
week.
Pollutants in smoke can cause burning eyes, runny nose, aggravate
heart and lung diseases, and aggravate other serious health
problems. Limit outdoor activities and keep children indoors if it
is smoky. Please follow medical advice if you have a heart or lung
condition.
