CONCORD – Oppressive heat has lead to reports of poor air quality and elevated ozone levels in parts of the state – so what does this mean for residents?
Chief Meteorologist Joe Joyce has the answers and some suggestions.
Elevated ozone levels pose a threat to everyone but especially young children, elderly and those with respiration issues.
So what can you do? To avoid experiencing breathing issues from high ozone levels, avoid strenuous outdoor activities and if you do go outside, drink lots of water.
Also, avoid motors and diesel engines as the fuels can also make breathing more difficult.
Unhealthy air quality has been reported in sections of the White Mountains and in portions of Rockingham County.
