Ozone Action Day for Tyler-Longview-Marshall
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has issued an Ozone Action Day for the Tyler-Longview-Marshall area for Saturday, May 30, 2009.
Atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing high levels of ozone air pollution in the Tyler-Longview-Marshall area on Saturday.
Elevated concentrations of ozone can act as a lung irritant. Individuals with chronic lung disease, such as asthma and emphysema, as well as the elderly and young children, are particularly sensitive to ozone and should attempt to avoid exposure. To avoid exposure, minimize exertion outdoors during the mid-day to early evening hours or stay indoors in an air-conditioned room during this time.
