SPECIAL SMOKE ADVISORY: Valid Tuesday April 29, 2008

Due to the Santa Anita Wildfire in Los Angeles County, localized areas of smoke may occur. As a result, concentrations of fine particulates may reach the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups level or higher in localized areas that are directly impacted by smoke, i.e. areas that can see and smell smoke. The areas affected by the smoke the most include Area 9 East San Gabriel Valley, Area 10 Pomona/Walnut Valley, Area 33 SW San Bernardino Valley, Area 32 NW San Bernardino Valley, and Area 36 E San Bernardino Mountain.

All individuals are urged to exercise caution and avoid unnecessary outdoor activities in the smoke impacted areas. People with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children should limit prolonged exertion in smoke impacted areas.
