Air Quality Alert

...OZONE ALERT THURSDAY...

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality has issued an ozone
alert for tomorrow, Thursday June 17th, for the Tulsa
metropolitan area.

An ozone alert means that conditions are favorable for the
buildup of ozone near the ground, to an unhealthy level.
When winds are light, the vapors from fuels such as gasoline,
exhaust from engines, and air pollutants from industrial activities
remain trapped near the ground. If sunshine is abundant when these
air pollutants build up, a chemical process is triggered that
results in the development of ozone near the ground during the
afternoon and evening hours.

While ozone in the upper levels of the atmosphere is beneficial in
screening the suns radiation, it is harmful near the ground. Ozone
can bother those with respiratory problems and can damage vegetation.

A few simple measures can be taken to help keep the ozone levels from
becoming unhealthy. During ozone alert days:

Postpone any unnecessary driving and car pool if possible.
If you do drive to work, turn The air conditioner in your car off
during your morning commute. You can also cut down on extra
driving by bringing your lunch to work. If you must refuel your
vehicle, do it in the evening after the sun goes down or postpone
your fueling to another day.

Postpone running the lawn mower and gas trimmer, the exhaust from
these small engines contributes a significant amount of pollution
to the air. Industrial facilities should reduce pollution emissions
as much as possible on ozone alert days.

These preventative measures, performed throughout the Tulsa metro
area, can have a tremendous effect in reducing the pollutants that
contribute to ozone problems.

For further information, contact The Oklahoma Department of
Environmental Quality at (918) 293-1600 or the Indian Nations
Council of Governments /incog/ at (918) 584-7526. Additional
information can also be found at www.ozonealert.com...
including current ozone levels around the Tulsa area.

...Code Orange Ozone Forecast For Today...

The ozone forecast for today is code orange...which means its
time to get serious about ozone pollution in central Arkansas.

The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality and the Arkansas
Department of Health have declared an Ozone Action Advisory for
today in Pulaski, Faulkner, Lonoke, Grant, Perry, and Saline
Counties.

Code Orange conditions are unhealthy for sensitive groups. Active
children and adults, and people with respiratory disease such as
asthma should limit prolonged outdoor exertion today. Symptoms of
ozone exposure may include shortness of breath, coughing,
wheezing, headaches, nausea, and eye and throat irritation.

To help reduce ozone formation, avoid driving at peak times
during the day, such as lunchtime. Postpone or combine errands.
Keep your car well tuned and avoid jack rabbit starts and
excessive idling. Refuel motor vehicles and mow lawns during the
late afternoon or evening hours only.

For more information on ozone, contact Metro Plan at 501-372-
3300. For more information on health effects, call the Arkansas
Department of Health at 501-661-2000. Additional information may

The general public is encouraged to help alleviate the problem by
reducing vehicle miles traveled by riding the bus...carpooling...or
avoiding unnecessary trips.  The public is also asked to avoid
refueling during the morning and early afternoon hours...and to

Arkansas, southwest Arkansas, north central Louisiana, northwest
Louisiana, southeast Oklahoma, east Texas and northeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight...

No hazardous weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday...

This weekend could pose possible impacts from a landfalling
tropical system somewhere across the Southeast Texas or Southern
Louisiana Gulf Coast. The remnants of this system, if it moves
across our region, could pose a heavy rainfall threat. This
appears most likely across portions of Deep East Texas and
especially Northern and Northeast Louisiana. If heavy rainfall
sets up across portions of the region this weekend, then flood
prone and poor drainage areas could be especially susceptible to
flooding.

Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters will not be needed through tonight.
