Air Quality to Improve Thursday; Continue Health Precautions

Air quality monitoring shows today’s air quality index to be unhealthy for sensitive groups. People with heart or lung disease, older adults and children should avoid prolonged or heavy exercise outdoors. Tomorrow’s air quality is forecasted to improve.

According to the Washington Smoke Information website, “Marine air starts to push in slowly this evening and it will be Thursday before western Washington is able to flush out. Expect ash to stop falling by tomorrow.”

Please continue to avoid the smoke and ash as much as possible by staying indoors, preferably in an air-conditioned location. Keep indoor air as clean as possible. Don’t use candles, fireplaces, or gas stoves; don’t smoke; and avoid vacuuming as it stirs up particles already inside your home.

The Washington State Department of Health has information about health concerns and dealing with wildfire smoke and ash.
