Dense Smoke Advisory

Statement as of 3:19 AM PDT on September 22, 2014

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on September 22, 2014


... Dense smoke advisory in effect from 11 am this morning to 8 PM
PDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a dense smoke
advisory... which is in effect from 11 am this morning to 8 PM PDT
this evening.

* Visibility: dropping to near one mile at times... especially
during the afternoon and evening when additional smoke from the
King fire is most likely to spread east of the Sierra crest.

* Impacts: periods of dense smoke may result in unhealthy air
quality with outdoor activities discouraged. Travel may be
impacted due to low visibility on Interstate 80... Highway 50
and Highway 89.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A dense smoke advisory is issued when smoke from wildfires
significantly reduces visibilities... making it difficult to see
and breathe. The smoke will continue to be a problem until the
fire becomes less active... or a more favorable weather pattern
disperses the smoke. Persons in the advisory area should avoid
prolonged exposure to the smoke and stay indoors.
