Air Quality Alert for the Baltimore and Washington, DC Area

Air Quality Alert for the Baltimore and Washington, DC Area

 

Ozone levels on Thursday could be harmful to the elderly, kids and people with lung disease, state officials warn.

 

Authorities have issued an air quality alert for the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., metro areas on Thursday, warning that ozone levels will be high. The orange-level alert from the Maryland Department of the Environment says “a very dirty air mass is in place. On top of that, unseasonably warm temperatures and light winds will allow ozone concentrations to rise.”

 

Counties included in the alert are: Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard, Montgomery and Prince George's, along with Washington, D.C., says the National Weather Service. - Gaithersburg Patch
