Air Quality Alert
Issued: 1:53 PM PST Nov. 15, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Air quality advisory in effect until 8 am PST Saturday...

An air quality advisory has been issued by the southwest clean air
agency. Smoke from indoor and outdoor wood burning and Forest fires
have led to increasing levels of fine particle air pollution in Lewis
County. Colder nights followed by limited daytime ventilation and
dispersion have caused fine particle air pollution levels to rise
toward the federal health-based Standard. These conditions are
forecast to continue through 8 am Saturday morning.

For Lewis County a burn ban is not in effect. However, residents are
encouraged not to burn due to increasing pollution levels.

residents should gauge air quality conditions where they live and
take appropriate actions to protect themselves. Remember, local smoke
levels can rise and fall rapidly, depending on weather factors
including wind direction.

Smoke inhalation can cause a range of health problems and sensitive
groups should take precautions. Stay indoors when possible and limit
air flow from the outside by closing windows and recirculating air.
Limit your physical activity outdoors. N95 or n100 rated masks can
help protect some people from air pollution.
