The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has called for an
Air Quality Action Day for high levels of Ozone in the air for
Sunday, June 16th for the following Southwest Indiana counties,

  Vanderburgh, Posey, Warrick, Spencer, Gibson, and Pike.

This alert is IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO MIDNIGHT CDT SUNDAY
NIGHT.

An Ozone Alert is issued when a combination of high temperatures,
light winds and other factors are expected to produce conditions
where high levels of ozone emissions may exceed federally mandated
standards.

 Here are some recommended actions that the public can take to
reduce Ozone emissions:

     * Walk, bike, carpool, or use public transportation
     * Avoid using the drive-through and combine errands into one
       trip
     * Avoid refueling your vehicle or using gasoline-powered lawn
       equipment until after 7 pm
     * Turn off your engine when idling for more than 30 seconds
     * Conserve energy by turning off lights or setting the air
       conditioner to 75 degrees or above.

 Anyone sensitive to changes in air quality may be affected when
Ozone levels are high. Children, the elderly, and anyone with heart
or lung conditions should reduce or avoid exertion and heavy work
outdoors.
