Air Quality Alert
Statement Issued: 11:42 am CDT on August 20, 2018

... Air quality alert in effect from 11 am today through 9 am
Tuesday...

the Minnesota pollution control agency has issued an air quality
alert for fine particle pollution for northeast Minnesota.

A narrow but thick band of wildfire smoke originating from British
Columbia is currently over central and northeast Minnesota this
morning. Air pollution monitors show fine particulates greater than
an air quality index (aqi) value of 101 (orange) in this area. This
plume of smoke is expected to move south during the day and persist
into the overnight. During this time, fine particle pollution is
expected to remain at, or above, a level that is considered unhealthy
for sensitive groups. Conditions will begin to improve overnight from
north to south as the smoke plume begins to exit the region. The
smoke is expected to exit the state completely by 9 a.M. Tomorrow.

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.
