High levels of PM 2.5 in Calexico

(Border Air Quality Unhealthy for some)…The Air Pollution Control District recorded the increased condition.

At 10:00 am Monday the 24-hour average of PM 2.5 reached 113 on the Air Quality Index at the Ethel Street Monitoring Station in Calexico. That resulted in a Air Quality condition of Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups. The Sensitive groups are those with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly or young children. It is recommended that those in the sensitive group reduce prolonged activity outdoors, until the levels of Particulate Matter are lower. PM 2.5 is a finite particulate matter created, in part, by vehicle emissions.
