heart and lung diseases... and aggravate other serious health
problems. Limit outdoor activities and keep children indoors if it
is smoky. Please follow medical advice if you have a heart or lung

quality issues due to smoke may improve briefly... the windy
conditions will also produce areas of blowing dust. This dust will
