breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome
by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat
stroke is an emergency... call 9 1 1.






Air Quality Alert

Statement as of 2:55 PM CDT on May 27, 2018

Expires 9:00 PM EDT on May 28, 2018


... Air quality alert in effect from 12 PM Monday through 8 PM
Monday...

The Minnesota pollution control agency has issued an air quality
alert for ozone pollution for Twin Cities Metro and south-central
and southeast Minnesota.

Air quality is expected to worsen Monday to unhealthy levels. Sunny
skies, hot temperatures, and light winds will combine to cause an
increase in ground level ozone. In addition, pollutants will collect
along the warm front that will be located just south of the Twin
Cities and contribute to increased ozone. Air quality index (aqi)
values are expected to climb into the low 100s on Monday in the
alert area. This is considered unhealthy for sensitive groups. Ozone
concentrations will be the lowest in the morning hours Monday, and
will gradually rise midday through the afternoon. Air quality will
improve Monday early evening as thunderstorms develop in southern
Minnesota and the sun lowers in the sky.

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.
