Air Quality - Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups

There is a smokey haze hanging over the Palouse today.

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality issued an Air Quality Advisory at 9:30am.

"Smoke from several forest fires to the south and west.
Contributing fires include fires around Dayton, WA, fires
in the Hells Canyon area of Idaho and Washington, fires
in northern Washington state, and other fires in central
Idaho. Current weather conditions are also a factor."

This morning the Air Quality Index was 107 which is Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups.
