Air Quality Alert

Expires 10:00 AM EDT on July 21, 2018
Statement as of 12:33 PM CDT on July 20, 2018

... Air quality alert in effect from 1 PM today through 9 am
Saturday...

the Minnesota pollution control agency has issued an air quality
alert for fine particle pollution for western portions of northern
and central Minnesota.

Air pollution monitors in northern Minnesota are showing a rapid rise
in fine particles with values exceeding an air quality index (aqi)
value of 100, along with weather observations showing visibilities
dropping to 1-5 miles due to smoke. The smoke plume that traveled
southward from southwest Ontario, Canada will continue to move
south/southwest across the remainder of the alert area. The smoke
arrives this afternoon into early evening from Bemidji to Moorhead,
and during the late evening and overnight from Alexandria to Saint
Cloud. Smoky conditions could last 6-8 hours at any location. Smoke
will begin decreasing from north to south with northern portions of
the alert area clearing Friday evening and southern portions clearing
out Saturday morning.

An air quality alert is issued when the aqi is expected to reach or
exceed 101, a level considered unhealthy for sensitive groups.
Sensitive groups, such as people with lung disease (including
asthma), heart disease, children and older adults, and people who are
active outdoors should limit prolonged exertion.
