Another Quality Advisory For the Rochester Area Begins Today

Our area is back under an air quality health advisory today and tonight because of smoke from the wildfires in Canada.

The state issues the advisories when meteorologists predict levels of pollution are expected to exceed an Air Quality Index value of 100.

Exposure can cause irritation to the eyes, nose, and throat; coughing, sneezing, runny nose, and shortness of breath.

Exposure can also worsen medical conditions such as asthma and heart disease.

Emergency cell phone alerts will be issues if air quality index exceeds the 200 threshold for very unhealthy air.
