Several fires in eastern and southeastern North Carolina are producing hazy conditions and smoky odors across the Triangle today, according to www.WRAL.com.
As a result, the N.C. Division of Air Quality has issued a Code Orange Health Notice for Ozone for central North Carolina until 9 pm today. People in sensitive groups – young children, the elderly, anyone with respiratory ailments and people who work/exercise outdoors – should limit their time outdoors.
Many air filtration systems do filter out particulates, however they may not filter out the odor. Therefore, it is best to try to stay indoors until the smoke clears.
