* Air quality...Poor mixing and light winds will keep stagnant
  conditions in place through at least Saturday morning.
  Pollutants may be trapped near ground level and this will

  of Environmental Quality has issued an Air Pollution Advisory
  which is in effect until further notice for Douglas,
  Josephine, Jackson, Klamath and Lake counties.

* Locations include...Valleys in Douglas, Josephine, Jackson,
  Klamath and Lake counties.

* Impacts...Pollutants in smoke may aggravate heart and lung
  disease and aggravate other serious health problems. Limit
  outdoor activities when air quality is reduced. Diminished air
  quality can create respiratory problems, especially for
  sensitive groups. Please follow medical advice if you have a
  heart or lung condition.
