Air Quality Alert


RELAYED BY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
233 PM CDT WED JUL 23 2014

OKZ060-250200-
TULSA-
INCLUDING THE CITY OF...TULSA
235 PM CDT WED JUL 23 2014

...OZONE ALERT THURSDAY...

THE OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY HAS ISSUED AN OZONE
ALERT FOR THURSDAY FOR THE TULSA METROPOLITAN AREA. AN OZONE ALERT
MEANS THAT CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR THE BUILDUP OF OZONE
NEAR THE GROUND TO AN UNHEALTHY LEVEL.

WHEN WINDS ARE LIGHT...THE VAPORS FROM FUELS SUCH AS GASOLINE...
EXHAUST FROM ENGINES...AND AIR POLLUTANTS FROM INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITIES
REMAIN TRAPPED NEAR THE GROUND. IF SUNSHINE IS ABUNDANT WHEN THESE
AIR POLLUTANTS BUILD UP...A CHEMICAL PROCESS IS TRIGGERED THAT
RESULTS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF OZONE NEAR THE GROUND DURING THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS.

WHILE OZONE IN THE UPPER LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE IS BENEFICIAL IN
SCREENING THE SUNS RADIATION...IT IS HARMFUL NEAR THE GROUND. OZONE
CAN BOTHER THOSE WITH RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS AND CAN DAMAGE VEGETATION.

A FEW SIMPLE MEASURES CAN BE TAKEN TO HELP KEEP THE OZONE LEVELS FROM
BECOMING UNHEALTHY. DURING OZONE ALERT DAYS:

POSTPONE ANY UNNECESSARY DRIVING...AND CAR POOL IF POSSIBLE. IF
YOU DO DRIVE TO WORK...TURN THE AIR CONDITIONER IN YOUR CAR OFF
DURING YOUR MORNING COMMUTE. YOU CAN ALSO CUT DOWN ON EXTRA
DRIVING BY BRINGING YOUR LUNCH TO WORK. IF YOU MUST REFUEL YOUR
VEHICLE...DO IT IN THE EVENING AFTER THE SUN GOES DOWN OR POSTPONE
YOUR FUELING TO ANOTHER DAY.

POSTPONE RUNNING THE LAWN MOWER AND GAS TRIMMER...THE EXHAUST FROM
THESE SMALL ENGINES CONTRIBUTES A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF POLLUTION
TO THE AIR. INDUSTRIAL FACILITIES SHOULD REDUCE POLLUTION EMISSIONS
AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ON OZONE ALERT DAYS.

THESE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES...PERFORMED THROUGHOUT THE TULSA METRO
AREA...CAN HAVE A TREMENDOUS EFFECT IN REDUCING THE POLLUTANTS THAT
CONTRIBUTE TO OZONE PROBLEMS.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION...CONTACT THE OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY AT (918) 293-1600 OR THE INDIAN NATIONS
COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS /INCOG/ AT (918) 584-7526. ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION CAN ALSO BE FOUND AT WWW.OZONEALERT.COM...
INCLUDING CURRENT OZONE LEVELS AROUND THE TULSA AREA.

143 PM CDT WED JUL 23 2014

...AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT FROM 7 AM TO 7 PM CDT THURSDAY...

THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT WAS ISSUED BY THE OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY.

AN AIR QUALITY ALERT FOR OZONE HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THURSDAY
JULY 24...FOR THE OKLAHOMA CITY METROPOLITAN AREA DUE TO
EXPECTED HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF OZONE.

PERSONS WITH EXISTING HEART OR RESPIRATORY AILMENTS SHOULD REDUCE
PHYSICAL EXERTION AND OUTDOOR ACTIVITY.

THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS ENCOURAGED TO HELP ALLEVIATE THE PROBLEM BY
REDUCING VEHICLE MILES TRAVELED BY RIDING THE BUS...CARPOOLING...OR
AVOIDING UNNECESSARY TRIPS.  THE PUBLIC IS ALSO ASKED TO AVOID
REFUELING DURING THE MORNING AND EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS...AND TO
AVOID THE USE OF TWO CYCLE ENGINES SUCH AS LAWN MOWERS...
MOTORCYCLES...WEEDEATERS...AND OUTBOARD ENGINES. IT IS ALSO ADVISED
TO LIMIT OUTDOOR BURNING.

FOR HOURLY UPDATES ON CONCENTRATIONS AND POSSIBLE HEALTH
WARNINGS...TELEPHONE THE OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
QUALITY AT 405-702-4100. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HEALTH
EFFECTS...CALL THE AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION OF OKLAHOMA AT
405-748-4674.
