    The New York state department of environmental conservation has
    issued an air quality health advisory for the following counties...

    Richmond... Kings... Queens... New York... Bronx... Westchester...
    Rockland.

    In effect until 10 PM EDT this evening.

    Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater
    than an air quality index value of 100 for the pollutant of ground
    level ozone. The air quality index... or aqi... was created as an
    easy way to correlate levels of different pollutants to one scale.
    The higher the aqi value... the greater the health concern.

    When pollution levels are elevated... the New York state department
    of health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous
    outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health
    effects. People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of
    elevated levels of pollutants include the very Young, and those
    with pre-existing respiratory problems such as asthma or heart
    disease. Those with symptoms should consider consulting their
    personal physician.

    A toll free air quality hotline has been established so New York
    residents can stay informed on the air quality situation. The toll
    free number is: 1 800 5 3 5 1 3 4 5.
