... High pollution advisory for Pinal County Thursday...

The Pinal County department of air quality has issued an airborne
coarse particle high pollution advisory for Pinal County including
Apache Junction, Casa Grande, Coolidge, and Florence for Thursday.

An episode of strong and gusty winds is forecast to generate
widespread blowing dust that may result in local coarse particle
concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health effects
increase as air quality deteriorates.

Coarse particulate matter - also known as PM-10 - is an air
contaminant that can aggravate heart and lung disease conditions,
especially in older adults, children, and those with asthma. A
decrease in physical activity is recommended.

Consolidate your travel, stabilize loose soils, slow down or avoid
travel on dirt roads, reduce or eliminate fireplace use, and avoid
using gas-powered lawn equipment.
