Advisory ends when winds subsides
ANCHORAGE – An expected weather pattern shift later this week has put the Matanuska Valley under an air quality advisory.
The Matanuska-Susitna Borough issued the advisory Tuesday afternoon. It will end when the wind subsides.
Strong winds are expected late Thursday night or Friday, which will cause dust and silt to blow due to the lack of snow on the groud, officials said.
Children, elderly and people with heart or lung disease are advised to stay indoors and reduce physical activity, according to the advisory. Vigorous outdoor activity should be avoided by everyone.
