WEDNESDAY...

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has
issued an air quality health advisory for the following counties...

Suffolk...Nassau...Richmond...Kings...Queens...New York...Bronx...Wes
chester...Rockland...Orange...Putnam.

Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than an
air quality index value of 100 for fine particles. The air quality
index...or AQI...was created as an easy way to correlate levels of
different pollutants to one scale. The higher the AQI value, the
greater the health concern.

When pollution levels are elevated...the New York State Department of
Health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous outdoor
physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health effects. People
who may be especially sensitive to the effects of elevated levels of
pollutants include the very young and those with pre existing
respiratory problems such as asthma or heart disease. Those with
symptoms should consider consulting their personal physician.

For additional information, please visit the New York State Department of
Environmental Conservation website at, https://on.ny.gov/nyaqi, or call
