Calgary air quality advisory continues for second straight day

Children, elderly folks and those with respiratory illnesses are the most at risk.

But regional air quality monitors note that the air is now "unhealthy for everyone", not just sensitive groups.

These sensitive populations should stay indoors and avoid prolonged activity.

Oregon's new air-quality web site has had almost a half-million visits since wildfire activity picked up July 15, creating smoky skies over much of the state.

"We had easterly flow, northeasterly flow bringing smoke from British Columbia and from Eastern Washington down into Puget Sound", he said.

A special weather statement issued by the National Weather Service was in effect through Tuesday, warning about degrading air quality.

DeAndre Hopkins kicked out of practice for fight
Hopkins wasn't happy that Ward knocked his helmet off, and then went to knock the ball out of his hands after making the catch. The San Francisco 49ers are in Houston this week in advance of their preseason bout with the Texans on Saturday, Aug. 18.

To see only wildfire smoke, look just at fine particulates, listed as PM 2.5, DEQ spokeswoman Katherine Benenati said.

Still, experts say that relief is on its way.

Thunderstorms could move into the Pacific Northwest on Friday morning, but they likely will be too far to the south of the Tri-Cities in OR to improve local air quality.

Air quality conditions may change quickly.

On Saturday, the regional district cancelled a previous air quality advisory after some clean marine air swept through clearing last week's smoke away. Conditions will gradually improve later (Wednesday), with more improvement Thursday.

Smoky conditions early this week created the worst air quality conditions seen in Washington this year, said Andy Wineke, a spokesman for the Washington Department of Ecology's Air Quality Program. We may even get some wind today that could help clear things a bit in the afternoon. Use an indoor air filter if available.
