High Wind Watch
Statement as of 3:30 PM PDT on August 27, 2015

... High wind watch in effect from Saturday morning through
Saturday evening...

The National Weather Service in Spokane has issued a high wind
watch... which is in effect from Saturday morning through Saturday
evening.

* Winds... southwest 25 to 35 mph with gusts to between 50 to 60
mph... except gusts up to 60 to 70 mph possible in the mountains.

* Timing... winds will increase Saturday morning and peak by the
early afternoon hours. Winds will relax Saturday evening.

* Impacts... high winds may result in in toppled trees and downed
power lines. Strong cross winds will result in hazardous travel
for high profile vehicles... especially along Interstate 90 and
along Highway 2. Winds will also produce blowing dust across the
basin into the surrounding valleys. Blowing dust may result in
visibility reduced to one quarter mile at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high wind watch means there is the potential for a hazardous
high wind event. Sustained winds of at least 40 mph... or gusts of
58 mph or stronger may occur. Continue to monitor the latest
forecasts.




Air Quality Alert
Statement as of 11:29 AM PDT on August 27, 2015

... Air quality alert in effect until further notice...

An air quality alert has been issued by the following agencies:

Washington department of ecology in Spokane
Idaho department of environmental quality in Lewiston
Washington department of ecology in Yakima
Idaho department of environmental quality in Coeur D'Alene
Nez Perce tribe
Colville confederated tribes
Spokane tribe
kalispel Indian community
Coeur D'Alene tribe
Spokane regional clean air agency
Kootenai tribe of Idaho

Elevated concentrations of wildfire smoke from area fires
continues across eastern Washington and north Idaho. Additionally,
blowing dust is expected over much of the area on Saturday. All
areas east of the Cascades and into north Idaho can continue to
expect poor air quality through the weekend. There may be times
and locations where the air quality improves to the good category,
but this is not expected to persist.

Precautions to be taken for areas experiencing increased smoke and
reduced air quality include:

*everyone should avoid heavy work or exercise outdoors when the
air quality index reaches unhealthy levels.

*Older adults, small children, and those with respiratory
conditions or heart disease may be more sensitive to poor air
quality and should stay indoors and avoid heavy work when air
quality reaches unhealthy levels.

*Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated helps dilute phlegm in
the respiratory tract, making it easier to cough out smoke
particles. Plan on coughing; it is nature's way of clearing your
lungs. Avoid caffeine products, sugary drinks and alcohol because
they have dehydrating effects.

*Stay cool when the weather is warm. Run your air conditioner to
recirculate air. Turn The Fan blower on manually so it
continuously filters the air in your home.

*If working outside, use a dust mask... n95 or n100. If a dusk mask
is not available, cover your nose and mouth with a damp
handkerchief.

This air quality alert will be reevaluated by Monday at noon.
