    The Air Quality Alert from the Oregon Department of Environmental
    Quality remains in effect until noon PDT Friday.
    Wildfires burning in the region combined with forecast conditions
    will cause air quality levels to fluctuate. Air quality could be at
    unhealthy levels, at times.
    Some areas have already experienced locally heavy rainfall and gusty
    winds, and more is possible through this evening, which should
    improve air quality some. If significant improvement does occur,
    this air quality alert will be updated.
    Consider moving activities indoors, or canceling or postponing any
    extended outdoor activity during periods of unhealthy air quality.
    Pollutants in smoke can cause burning eyes...runny nose...aggravate
    heart and lung diseases...and aggravate other serious health
    problems. Limit outdoor activities and keep children indoors if it
    is smoky. Please follow medical advice if you have a heart or lung
    condition.
