Gov. Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency Monday for Napa and Sonoma counties, among others, where 70-mile-an-hour winds fanned some of the largest fires. That's good for firefighters but it also means the smoke continues to linger in the air.
The district issued an air quality advisory this morning, saying the particulate matter in the smoke had generated an air quality index of 194 as of 6 a.m. In accordance with San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District recommendations - if you can see or smell smoke, the air quality is poor and outdoor activity should be limited.
"Due to active wildfires and changing wind patterns, air quality could be impacted for many days to come", air district officials said in a statement.
Residents were advised not to venture for any outdoor activity, including exercise, if they encountered smoke in their immediate area.
But, for those in Solano County, much closer to the wildfires burning in both Napa and Sonoma counties, air quality remains at an extremely unhealthy level. Young children, seniors and people with respiratory problems are "especially susceptible" to the health effects of pollutants from smoke.
If possible, stay indoors with windows and doors closed and air conditioning units on recirculate to avoid drawing outside air into buildings.
