Health Advisory for Western Nevada County for smoke through October 13

Health Advisory for Western Nevada County for smoke through October 13”

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District issued the Air Quality Alert on Wednesday due to smoke impacts from wildfires for San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Fresno, Kings, Tulare and the Valley portion of Kern counties.

A press release was issued on Tuesday, October 10 by the BAAQMD, alerting Bay Area residents that the very unhealthy air quality from the wildfires in the North Bay is causing unprecedented levels of air pollution throughout the Bay Area.

"Due to active wildfires and changing wind patterns, air quality could be impacted for many days to come".

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Air Quality (AQI) ranked San Francisco air as "unhealthy for sensitive groups" (the orange parts of the map) and predicts "unhealthy" (crimson red) for Thursday.

"We're seeing the worst air quality ever recorded in many parts of the Bay Area". Older adults, pregnant women, children and those with preexisting heart and lung conditions are particularly vulnerable.

It is imperative that Bay Area residents protect their health, especially in Napa and Sonoma counties.

Residents of smoke-impacted areas who are forced to stay are being recommended to use an N95 mask to minimize breathing in fine particles in the smoke.

Warning Bay Area residents about the risks of inhaling the hazardous air, Flannigan urged people to take precautions if they were close to an area where the air quality was poor.

"Please curtail wood burning, lawn mowing and leaf blowing, driving, and BBQing", says a tweet care of San Francisco-based Spare the Air, an environmental agency. Children at schools in affected areas were kept inside during recess to prevent them from inhaling the dangerously polluted air, which has left the sky brown, San Francisco Gate reported.
