Air Quality Alert
Issued: 12:11 AM Jul. 31, 2021 – National Weather Service
...AIR QUALITY HEALTH ADVISORY FOR WILDFIRE SMOKE FROM 800 AM
FRIDAY UNTIL 900 AM SATURDAY...

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...northern Routt County. Locations include, but are not
limited to Glen Eden and Clark.

WHEN...800 AM Friday July 30 to 900 AM Saturday July 31

IMPACTS...Areas of moderate to heavy smoke have been observed in
close proximity to the Morgan Creek wildfire in northern Routt
County Friday morning. Smoke concentrations should gradually
decrease late Friday morning as atmospheric mixing improves. Rain
showers and thunderstorms will be possible Friday afternoon, and
may produce gusty erratic, gusty winds that could send smoke in
any direction. By late Friday evening, smoke will begin to drain
to lower elevations surrounding the fire. This will likely bring
periods of heavy smoke again to areas along Morgan and Reed
Creeks, eventually draining into the Elk River Valley and
impacting the communities of Glen Eden and Clark through Saturday
morning.

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
