An Air Quality Alert is in effect until 1 PM EDT this afternoon.

The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources has issued an Air Quality
Health Advisory for all of Vermont.

Expect PM2.5 concentrations in the unhealthy range for sensitive
groups (USG range) in Vermont, as wood smoke from Canadian wildfires
remains in the region. Concentrations should be highest in the
morning and will trend to drop over the course of the day.

When air pollution in the ambient air is elevated, people
with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children are the
groups most at risk. Exposure to elevated levels of fine
particles can increase the likelihood of respiratory symptoms in
sensitive individuals, and aggravate heart or lung disease in
persons with cardiopulmonary disease and the elderly.

An Air Quality Alert means that particulate concentrations within
the region may approach or exceed unhealthy standards.
