Air Quality Advisory Issued for Northeast Ohio 
Tuesday and Wednesday, July 6 and 7, 2010 due to Ozone

Smoggy Sun
Northeast Ohio -
High temperatures are expected to continue through at least mid-week, resulting in a continuing air pollution episode for the region.

The counties of Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit will remain under an air pollution advisory through at least Wednesday July 7 due to ozone.

 
Sensitive groups, including older adults, children, and those with heart or respiratory conditions, are advised to limit outdoor activity.
 
Ozone is formed by a reaction between chemicals, including emissions from cars, trucks, industry, paints and solvents. Because sunlight and hot weather can cause harmful concentrations to form, it is known as a summertime air pollutant.

NOACA's Air Quality Programs will continue to monitor weather and pollution forecasts closely in the coming week. You will be informed Wednesday if pollution levels are expected to continue be unhealthy for sensitive groups.

Thank you for your attention to air pollution in Northeast Ohio.

Northeast Ohio - Ozone pollution is expected to persist through Monday, July 5, as hot, humid weather lingers over the region.

This weekend's Advisory has been extended to Monday for Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit counties.

 
Older adults, children, and those with heart or respiratory conditions should continue to exercise caution about outdoor physical activity.
 
Ozone is generated through emissions from cars, trucks, industry, paints, solvents, lighter fluid, and other volatile (flammable) chemicals.  It peaks in the late afternoons and early evenings during hot, sunny, summer days with little wind.

NOACA's Air Quality Programs will continue to monitor pollution levels closely in the coming week.  We will keep you apprised if conditions again reach levels considered unhealthy for sensitive groups.
