Air Quality Warning Issued for Tuesday

The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection and the federal Environmental Protection Agency today warned that air quality is expected to be unhealthy along the Connecticut coast Tuesday as the temperature soars close to 100.

The agencies said in an advisory that the area will experience elevated concentrations of ground-level ozone, commonly called smog.

The advisory said while anyone can be affected by ozone, groups particularly sensitive include children and adults who are active outdoors, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma. 

“Sensitive people who experience effects at lower ozone concentrations are likely to experience more serious effects at higher concentrations.  Still, even the healthiest people may find it difficult to breathe when ozone levels are very high,” the advisory said.

The agencies said all people, especially children and those with respiratory ailments, should limit strenuous outdoor activity when high ozone levels are expected.
