AIR QUALITY HEALTH ADVISORY CANCELED
The Anchorage Department of Health and Human Services is canceling the air quality health advisory issued on Wednesday, May 21, 2014. The advisory was originally issued due to unhealthy air quality conditions in the Municipality of Anchorage due to intrusion of wildfire smoke from the Tyonek and Funny River Fires.
Smoke concentrations have dissipated, and air quality is now good throughout the Municipality of Anchorage. Anchorage Air Quality Program expects that air quality conditions will remain good under the current weather pattern.
Air quality updates can be obtained by calling the Municipal Air Quality Hotline at 343-4899. Hourly updates of air quality data in Anchorage, Eagle River and Mat-Su are available on the Alaska Air Monitoring Network. You can find a guide and links to that network on the Anchorage Air Quality Program webpage at AnchorageAir.info.
