Michigan on Alert Air Quality Warning Issued for Tuesday

For Tuesday, June 27, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy has issued an Air Quality Alert.

The Upper and Lower Peninsulas are both receiving smoke from Canadian wildfires, and the advisory warns that it could eventually become Unhealthy For All. The smoke will vary from Unhealthy For Sensitive Groups to Unhealthy For All in some areas.

The tweet below also shows the news:

Sensitive populations should restrict prolonged or intense effort, including those with heart illness, lung disease (including asthma), children, and elderly adults. Additionally, you should cut back on or stop doing things like outside burning and using wood-burning appliances in your home.

Additionally, close your windows at night to keep smoke from entering your home, and if you can, run your central air conditioning with filters that have a MERV rating of 13 or higher.
