Wildfires from Canada are bringing smoke into Washington State and a high concentration into Central Washington.
Yesterday Manson reached unhealthy levels of PM2.5, Particulate Matter with a size less than 2.5 microns, and the trend of unhealthy levels of smoke are expected to continue throughout next week.
Residents are urged to stay inside and limit outdoor activity. The reading at the Woodin Avenue air quality monitoring station read 175 ppm (parts per million) at 7 AM Saturday morning. A reading above 150 is considered unhealthy.
