...Areas of Unhealthy Smoke This Morning...

Smoke from wildfires burning in British Columbia spread across
southwest Washington and northwest Oregon overnight. This has
resulted in air quality deteriorating across portions of the
area. Current air quality observations indicate some locations
have air quality that is unhealthy for sensitive groups and even
unhealthy for all groups in isolated pockets. Please consider
limiting outdoor activities until air quality improves.
