Due to poor air quality in North Carolina’s metro
areas today- it may be a good idea to stay in the High Country.
quality officials have issued an orange alert for Charlotte, Hickory, the Triad
and Triangle areas. A similar alert was issued yesterday. People in those
metropolitan areas are advised to avoid moderate exertion outdoors in the
afternoons. Air pollution of this nature could also negatively affect those
with heart conditions or respiratory ailments. Ozone is believed to be the
primary cause of the alert.
