High Ozone Levels, Unhealthy Air Predicted Friday

The Air Pollution Control District has issued an Air Quality Alert for tomorrow. Ozone levels are forecasted to be high, and unhealthy for sensitive groups including the elderly, the young, and anyone with heart or lung ailments.

This is the fifth air quality alert Metro Government has called this year, but so far none of the alerts have actually resulted in a day of unhealthy air. Spokesman Tom Nord says the Air Pollution Control District tends to err on the side of caution.
