Gusty Winds Prompt Health Caution

Blowing dust as a result of gusty winds has prompted local air-pollution officials to issue a health cautionary statement today through tomorrow, Friday, throughout the San Joaquin Valley. This health caution is in effect in San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Fresno, Kings, Tulare and the Valley portion of Kern counties.

 

Winds may produce areas of localized blowing dust, which can result in unhealthy concentrations of particulate matter 10 microns and smaller (PM10). Exposure to particulate pollution can cause serious health problems, aggravate lung disease, trigger asthma attacks and bronchitis, and increase risk of respiratory infections.
