Air Quality Alert

410 PM MDT Mon Jul 26 2021


The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...northern Routt County. Locations include, but are not
limited to Glen Eden and Clark

WHEN...800 AM Monday July 26 to 900 AM Tuesday July 27

IMPACTS...Areas of moderate to heavy smoke have been observed in
close proximity to the Morgan Creek wildfire in northern Routt
County Monday morning. Smoke concentrations should gradually
decrease late Monday morning as atmospheric mixing improves. An
isolated thunderstorm will be possible near the fire Monday
afternoon, and may produce gusty, erratic winds which could send
smoke in any direction. By late Monday evening, smoke will begin
to drain to lower elevations surrounding the fire. This will
likely bring periods of heavy smoke again to areas along Morgan
and Reed Creeks, eventually draining into the Elk River Valley and
impacting the communities of Glen Eden and Clark through Tuesday

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
