Ozone Levels Were Unhealthy Saturday, Sunday

Air pollution monitors in Louisville registered high levels of ozone this weekend, as predicted.

The area ranked a 114 on the Air Quality Scale--where anywhere from 101-150 indicates air that's unhealthy for sensitive groups. Ozone measured at 81 parts per billion--and the federal standard is 75 parts per billion.

So far, the metro area has exceeded ozone standards four times this summer.
