...AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING...

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control in
Columbia SC has issued a Code Orange Ground Level Ozone Action Day
for the Upstate and Catawba regions of South Carolina, until 8 PM
EDT this evening.

An ozone action day means that atmospheric conditions will likely
produce unhealthy concentrations of ground level ozone air
pollution. A Code Orange forecast indicates that ground level ozone
concentrations are expected to be unhealthy for sensitive groups,
which includes people with lung disease, older adults and children.
Sensitive groups should reduce prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion,
take more breaks, and do less intense activities, especially during
afternoon and early evening hours. You can help prevent ozone
pollution by carpooling, walking or riding your bicycle, taking your
lunch to work, reducing idling, conserving energy, and keeping your
vehicle properly tuned. For additional information, please visit the
South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control web
site at http://www.scdhec.gov/ozone or the Environmental Protection
Agency AirNow website at https://www.airnow.gov.
