Air quality alert issued for northwest Montana

The air quality in Eastern Humboldt has been deemed unhealthy today by the North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District.

Unhealthy: People with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly, and children should avoid any outdoor activity; everyone else should avoid prolonged exertion.

According to a public service announcement put out by the NCUAQMD, areas of Orleans, Weitchpec and Hoopa are all experiencing "unhealthy" air conditions.

Continued fire activity from the Carr, Mendocino Complex, and OR fires continue to send smoke into the area.

Environment Canada has issued a special air quality statement for much of the Prairies, saying the air quality is poor and that conditions are not expected to change for the rest of the week.

According to an NWS forecast discussion, haze higher in the atmosphere is from wildfires across south OR and northern California.

Still, experts say that relief is on its way.

Elba, 45, has previously dismissed rumours and said he had not had any discussions with the studio about taking over the role.

Air quality should improve a bit and hover around moderate by Wednesday, the Environmental Protection Agency said.

Temperatures will stay in the 80s until Thursday, when they dip into the upper 70s.

That's the case in Chelan County, where air quality indexes were pushing 200, according to the World Air Quality Index Project.

While August 2017 was also smoky, unhealthy air quality isn't a common summer occurrence.

The National Weather Service extended its air quality alert for most of Eastern Washington and north central OR by 48 hours on Wednesday morning.

New West, on the heels of the fallout from Friday's Fraser River barge fire, had briefly seen a clearing of the air thanks to clean marine air that swept through the region. "If you can be indoors where you get some filtered air, that's what you want to do".
