The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is extending an air quality advisory through Thursday, August 9, in the Bay Area, including South County and northern San Benito County.

Sensitive individuals should stay indoors in an air conditioned building with windows and doors closed whenever there is smoke at ground level in their area.

"The Bay Area is suffering an air quality one-two punch - smog from auto exhaust and smoke from multiple wildfires", said Jack Broadbent, executive officer of the Air District, in a Wednesday press release. Due to active wildfires and changing wind patterns, air quality throughout the Bay Area could be impacted through most of the week. Air Quality has reached "orange" -unhealthy for sensitive populations- levels as a result of the smoky conditions we are experiencing. These potential negative health impacts may be exacerbated by prolonged smoke or ozone exposure. While all people may experience varying degrees of symptoms, the more sensitive individuals - such as young, aged and those with respiratory conditions - are at greatest risk of experiencing more aggravated symptoms.

Pollutants in smoke can cause burning eyes.runny nose.aggravate heart and lung diseases.and aggravate other serious health problems.
