Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Issues Air Quality Alert
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency issued an air quality alert this morning for Central Minnesota. The areas in the most danger include St. Cloud and parts of the Twin Cities metro. According to the agency, the warning is in effect until 8 p.m. this evening due to today's high temperatures reaching near 90 degrees mixed with wildfire smoke and lots of sunshine.
People who are most at risk include people with asthma, young children and teenagers, people who play sports or are active outdoors and people who are sensitive to the ozone.
The MPCA advises you to limit your outdoor activity until the threat is over and stay away from air pollution sources like busy roads and fires. You can get more health tips from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's website.
